The look is very nice. Solid and still after the initial pour that produced a medium, dense, mocha head. Legs are almost non-existent.
I smell some soy sauce. I hate that. Medium/Dark roasted malts and sour milk sweetness. A little sharper smell than an Expedition Stout.
The taste has some lactose, some milk sourness. Dark, chalk chocolate. The stout flavors are laid back. Did it help that I drank a CW Reserve Bourbon Barrel Stout before this.
The feel is not bad. Nothing to complain about, but it lends to the excellence of the overall experience.

Overall - Not bad. I would rather drink a smoother and richer Expedition Stout. I don't know why I compared it to the Expedition, but I did. Chalky, dark chocolate is here.

A: poured into a snifter to a deep black with a dense two finger dark tan head that fades to a small pool and leaves great lacing
S: smells of chocolate and vanilla with some roasted malts
T: taste is chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, almost mocha like. very sweet and decadent so it's more akin to drinking a dessert. swallow is more chocolate, roasted malt and vanilla with a little coffee on the back end that fades to a near smokey charred wood
M: big, smooth and velvety on the palate with soft carbonation and a neutral finish that's a little drying
O: a great beer with fantastic flavors and complexity. no faults and some nice bold flavors. Grab it if you see it as the experience is worth it.

I am not going to go through my notes on this one, but it is sensational. Top notch stout

We used it for a 5-course beer pairing night at the restaurant. Though it is great on its own, we paired it to a simple Lemon Creme Brulee. The beer turned into cold espresso with a hint of chocolate and vanilla. The combination was one of the best pairing (wine included) experiences of my life.
