Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass

A: Black with minimal carbonation. Thin brown head that disappears quickly.

S: Bourbon with hints of chocolate and coffee. The ABV comes through in the smell as well.

T: Chocolate, coffee, and bourbon. Nice warm medium alchohol aftertaste. Starts a bit bitter and ends with a slight sweet aftertaste.

M: For a stout I don't think it has a syrup type of thickness that matches it's look. Minimal if nonexistant carbonation.

O: Very nice. I was initially taken aback by the lack of carbonation - I thought I might have had a bad bottle. Worked as designed.
