a= Pour is black, with a surprising light tan head.

s= roasted malts & coffee

t= initial taste is: sweet with a hop finish a bit bitter at the end. Very nice.

m= Smooth full flavor of coffee and malt. Not over powering

d= This was an excellent stout. Could easily drink more than one.

4.5/5  rDev +4.7%

poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass

A - dark brown-black with deep amber highlights; one and a half fingers of a mocha/tan head with a large bead diminished to just barely a finger and remained for all but the last few ounces; left thick splotchy lacing

S - rooty, rich and toasty malt nose with a strong roasted barley edge and coffee, bakers chocolate, and espresso notes with a whiff of alcoholic heat

T - the palate is very much in line with the nose, though an alcohol-driven, faint vanilla note emerges towards the back and the roasted malt is more evident; there are hints of dried fruit married to the malt

M - excellent texture; rich, full body bordering on creamy; CO2 is gentle; alcohol and dark malts provide a firming dryness to the finish

D - definitely not a session beer, but really quite drinkable

overall, this is the beer that defines the style for me; truly excellent stuff!
