12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, dark fudge, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, light char, light smoke, light herbal, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, dark fudge, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, light char, light smoke, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Moderate amount of earthy hop/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, dark fudge, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, light char/smoke, herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice robustness and complexity of dark/roasted malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a nice roast malt bitterness/sweetness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice stout! All around good complexity, balance, and robustness of dark/roasted malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
