12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: Pours about as close to pitch black as you can get. Dark brown head quickly dissipates. This is about the color of my soul.
Smell: Chocoate, vanilla, and bourbon hit the nose right away, with some coffee hints. Smells complexly blissful.
Taste: WOW. It's like when Bruce Willis was dead at the end of Sixth Sense. Chocolate! Molasses! Caramel! Coffee! This is what I picture when I envision the embodiment of a stout. Obviously there is a hint of booziness, but it is VERY subdued and well-mixed with the other tastes. Simply spectacular.
Mouthfeel: This is some smooth stuff! Creamy, with a little viscosity to it, but it definitely doesn't leave any sort of a bad aftertaste. Very clean.
Overall: If I could buy out next year's supply of this, I would. Unreal.

Pours thick like molasses and solid black in color. Head is thin tan and retains nicely.
Smell is incredible, some dark red fruity notes are forward before a nice bourbon and oak aroma cut through the fruity esters. Rich toffee malt with subtle aromas of toasted marshmallow and more fruity esters finish.
Taste follows the nose and is just as good. Dark fruity lightly sweet flavors are forward along with a light bourbon presence and a dry oak flavor. Rich toffee malt finishs along with some light toasted marshmallow flavors in the finish.
Mouthfeel is great. Thick body and mild carbonation keep this a perfect sipping beer. Hits all points, sweet sticky dry lightly bitter, anything you could ask for from a great stout
