Pours essentially black, with a giant head that lingers for a long time. Great lacing as your drink it down. Smell of roasted malt, some faint cherry and woody, nutty notes. Tastes of smooth, roasted malt, that finishes creamy. Slight bitterness helps balance out the sweetness of the malt. Not too dry, goes down smooth. I do notice a slight "hard water" type taste that is present in all the SS beers as far as I can tell, however it works great with their stouts and darker beers, but not so good with the lighter ales.
