Poured from a bottle, out of a 4-pack. The stout produces a significant 1/4-1/2" head, thin but prominent. Very opaque and dark beer to go along with creamy-tan head. Initial smell yields aromas of oak/nutty undertones, with a kind of musty coffee and chocolate theme. There was minimal forward taste, and the beer has a quick, sharp aftertaste. There is a smooth coffee flavor, that has a balanced bitterness throughout the beer, but the flavor is short-lived. It truly seems to skip from the initial flavor straight to aftertaste. It does leave a strong, thick residue on the glass, which goes well with the strength of a stout. Overall, a very drinkable beer.
