From bottle at home. 25F outside, so this is the ticket. Thick pour yields a dark rich head that settles into a foam thick as the malted milk shakes of my youth.

Remember when Guinness had a head the could carry your initial to the bottom on a biscuit-like 'raft'?

This stuff started out that way but gave up half way down. Still, it was the nearest I've seen in years.

Had the coloration of espresso, head & body, but way less coffee in the taste, which I found surprising, but not disappointing. There is plenty going on.

There is a clever puckering bitterness that lets you know this is an adult beverage. The alcohol is there but very discrete. Body is thick...chewy & creamy.

What's not to like? Even the 9.7 ABV means I can have another.

This beer is really underrated, IMO. Here goes:

A; Perfect. Pours pitch-black with a massive (and slow to build), dark head.

S: Dark chocolate, lots of roasted malt, coffee, cream, etc. The malt in this beer is perfectly blended.

T: Follows the nose, and this is great. Robust chocolate followed by coffee bitterness. However, the milky, creamy goodness alleviates the coffee bitterness somewhat. This beer is stupendous.

F: Thick and creamy. Good.

O: Nearly perfect. Will buy again.

Pours dark as night, but the head was meager. Nice roasty nose and taset, though not as complex as some that I've had of late, still can't say it was bad. Thick and chewy, not quite as dry a finish as I would expect. Pretty good over all, but will sit on the bench while other Stouts get he minutes.
