A- pours the typical stout black. a nice frothy head which is a dark tannish color. looks like it could be in a commercial.
S- just some roasted malt blended perfectly with some chocolate. really nice.
T- just how it smells but with a weird creamy taste (hard to explain). the alcohol is just a tad bit noticable but for 8.3abv what would you expect? the coffee makes more of an appearence as an aftertaste but very lightly.
M- solid medium bodied. good carbonation. really silky (prolly from the oats).
D- this should be a year around brew!
Overall- i can't believe this is the first time i've finally had this brew. it really holds up to its reputation. this stout alone should be up there with the best stouts of america. appreciate it while it's here!

Served at 40 degrees
Pours pitch black, allowing no light to pass through. A light brown head quickly dissolves to a thin ring. No noticeable carbonation. Decent lacing and light legging.
Rich, bitter chocolate and cocoa nibs up front backed by thick notes of roasted coffee. Hints of molasses. Not a lot to speak of beyond that, but it is very pleasing.
Bitter chocolate hits you first with a subtle smoke character. Gobs of roasted malt and coffee ride out each sip. Light notes of molasses and vanilla. Roasted coffee aftertaste. Alcohol is well masked - I'd never guess this one at 8%.
This is a full-bodied beer that will fill you up. Again, no noticeable carbonation. Smooth exit with a nice aftertaste.
This is a fantastic beer for the cold winter days we have ahead. Easy to drink, but best enjoyed slowly. Highly recommend.
