12oz bottle poured into pint glass. Very good. Tasty. Lots of chocolate. Easy drinking. Buy again. Lives up to the rating. Smooth drinking

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- It has a crazy bakery smell to it. very enticing.
Appearance- It is like looking into the abyss! it is pitch black. with a small tan head.
Taste- Wow, I am a novice venturing into the stout arena but this is incredible. A mix of coffee, cappuccino and hops.
Palate- A heavy beer body wise with moderate carbonation.
Overall- I am loathe to follow the beer snobs and call this awesome. . . but it truly is.

On point with the bitters, delicate sweetness, smooth creaminess, but the metallic finish really interrupted my enjoyment— it felt like a sudden shift in a different direction. Certainly unique, but what makes it unique is something I just don't care for.

Exceptional. Sweet but not too much. Strong but not too strong. Great balance between a beer with flavor and one with a strong alcohol content. It's a brew that never let's you forget you're drinking a beer but never let's you forget it's one of a kind.
