Pours a luscious dark black hue with a creamy one finger head and lacing everywhere,the smell is dark roasted coffee,chocolate malts,milk chocolate and a slight herbalness,the mouthfeel is full bodied and slightly carbonated and the tastes are dark and milky chocolate mixed with dark espresso and finished with a mix of roastiness and herbal hoppiness and overall a great drop that I could drink alnight a classic dessert beer.

Appearance: Poured nice and dark with a tan head which didn't stick around long.
Smell: Almost exactly like an old style chocolate malt! Seemed very sweet.
Taste: Follows the nose. Chocolate, malt, molasses, a touch of coffee and malt. Did I mention malt?
Mouthfeel: Medium body. Not viscous.

Overall: A solid example of the style, but not balanced IMO. Glad I tried it, wouldn't turn it down if it were offered, but would choose something else myself.

A: dark brown opaque, bordering on black, virtually no head, brown ring, leaves no lacing
S: chocolate, coffee, caramel
T: toasty, woody, coffee, chocolate, bitter
M: medium-thick, bordering on syrupy, bites the tongue, dryish finish
O: maybe a little too sweet for me as a stout, but that's a possible upside for others. Most of the sweetness quickly disappears in the finish, leaving toasted wood and coffee.

*12 oz. bottle* Ok, this is my first time of getting my hands wet with Left Coast Brewing. Lets see what we got. When poured this turned out to have a black body with a mocha lacing around my glass. When I popped this baby's cherry (cap). I could smell the aroma of German chocolate cake... mmm. After getting my head in to this I found highly roasted malts, with hints of coffee. German chocolate with a hint of mild pine oil. Interesting. After this beer made love to my sense of smell, now I want to plunge in and get a feel for her. The taste is bitter chocolate. Burnt malts follow yet not offensive. I pick up some cherry pit with hints of espresso. Slightly bitter finish leaves its mark on your taste buds. The feel on the palate is medium-light smooth body with a very tight and sharp carbonation.

Overall: This stout is pretty solid. Very decent roasted malt flavors with a nice touch of bitter chocolate. If complexity you're looking for.. this one is a little tamed, just to the point stout. The aroma for me is the highlight on this brew. I thought I was baking a German Chocolate Cake while brewing some morning coffee. This is very drinkable for being 8.5% abv. This one just doesn't scream excellence to me (IMO). This brew is worthy.
