Pours black with coffee colored head.

Smells like roasted malts and coffee. Intense smell.

Tastes follows the smell. Didn't get the slight sweetness some other raters noted. Just straight up roasted malts. coffee, and a hint of dark chocolate.

Palate- Crisp and dry. Less creamy than other stouts and there is a warming touch of alcohol.

As far as stouts go this is a good one and different that other stouts I have had. I will probably buy this again.

The beer poored with an extremely thick light brown head. The smell was fantastic. It had a very strong smell like chocolate and molasses. The taste hit the taste buds in the back of my mouth and hung around a long time after. I will be buying this beer in the future.
