Pours a rich dark brown and opaque with a slight tan head. Nose is roast with aging of chocolate and coffee. Taste is malty cocoa and a bit one note. Not enough complexity to be world class. But decent and drinkable. Finishes a bit thin for style.

Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. Label says DEC08 14

A- Pours a 99% opaque black color with a 1/2 inch dark tan head that retains decently before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a symmetrical pattern of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Solid roasted malt hit with some light coffee and semisweet chocolate interlaced.

T- Roast-forward but the alcohol level and mouthfeel keep it more subdued. A little char with a fading aftertaste.

M- Somewhat thin feel but with a fullish body and medium carbonation.

O- Pretty decent, no-frills stout. Straightforward and balanced enough to make me enjoy one, but not reach for a second.

Pours black, but brown and red show thru when held to the light. Thumb sized brown head falls fairly quick but leaves gobs of lace.

Aroma is nice charred notes, hints of smoke and light licorice riding on chocolate malts. Some coffee and vanilla notes mingled with some hoppy herbal notes.

Taste is earthy notes up front riding on roasted malt base, chocolate and good coffee notes mingled. Some good vanilla notes with herbal hoppy notes. Some good spice notes mingled through out not sure if its the hops yeast or what.

Mouthfeel is only medium with lightly peppy carbonation. Seems little light for a stout but its enjoyable enough.

Overall find it a solid beer, little spicier then most but makes for a good holiday brew. Will buy more of this if its still available.
