Poured from bottle into tulip glass.

Lot of head bubbling up. Quality lacing, oh wait who gives a crap about lacing.

Smell is of bitter dark chocolate and generic powder coffee. That's about it, not too complex.

Taste is exactly the nose. A total one note of bitter dark chocolate and roastiness. The body is fairly smooth yet finishes bitter and astringent.

I have to be brutal here and say despite having high expectations for this well regarded stout, I find it one of the worst stouts out there. It has no complexity. Solely dark chocolate and the worst tasting gas station coffee caught up in a horrific amount of bitterness throughout the beer and especially in the finish. The IBUs are absurdly high, 85, why would you do that in a stout? This is brittle, miserable and painful to drink. It's a struggle not to drain pour.
