Poured into a standard pint glass: color is dark brown to near black, head is light tan, small bubbles and presents about 1/2 inch thick then dissipates to a thick ring and top.
Smell is very enticing: nice malt forward aroma, good roast, toast and some chocolate, not too sweet, grassy and subtle fruity hop aromas.
Taste is a little thinner or maybe dryer than expected: malts are roast and some chocolate, maybe some toffee and touch of caramel; hops are subtle, grassy, not overpowering in flavor but some noticeable bitterness.
Mouthfeel is where it seems to trend towrads IPA status instead of stout, it maintains the dryness and bitterness from the taste.
Overall, a solid brew, not too sweet for dark ipa but not quite enough hop presence to get it too stand out, yet very drinkable.
