near pitch black, shades of dark brown around the edges. the head is a wonderful dark tan, but stays small and fades quickly. Minimal spotty lacing on the glass.
huge roasted malt & oat character, definite dark roast coffee, dark chocolate and some vanilla. smells like everything used to make this beer was roasted one way or another
thick, slick and oily. wow they got the feel of this beer down PERFECTLY. The taste is lots of coffee, huge roasted malts, an oaty character, vanilla. Lots of sweetness. Chocolate surfaces more in the finish & also as this beer warms up. Delectable. Earthy hops come through a little & continue to grow in the long-term aftertaste. Very faint booze in the finish.
Pretty much everything about this stout makes it really enticing. The body is hands down one of the most solid I've ever had in a stout. The roasty flavor really hits me over the head though and it wouldn't continue to be desirable (for me) for more than one glass.

On principle, I am hesitant to rate a beer as perfect. This is the tastiest stout I have ever had. Is it the best? I am not sure, and the only reason I'm not sure is that there are still other beers out there in the world. It pours heavy, no head and minimal lacing, into a tulip glass (next time I'll use a snifter). It tastes sweet, and bitter, and chocolatey - I sense coffee, but on my palate the chocolate is more present - and heavy. Like I really could have it for breakfast. And by God the next time I don't have to work and my kid is already at daycare, I will have one for breakfast, and by then maybe I'll decide it truly is the best stout ever.
