From a 550ml bottle into a pint glass.
A: pitch black with zero light penetration. Two fingers of thick kaki head with amazing thick lace. I have never seen a stout stick to a glass as well as this one.
S: roasted malts and dark chocolate. I don't pick up any hops what so ever.
T: follows the smell well. Roasty dark chocolate with some carmel undertone. Absolutely no hop bitterness to offset the malt.
M: thick on every swig with lots of head and heavy on the tung.
O: this is my opinion of a great IS. Not my favorite but one hell of a good beer.
