Pours a deep black with a big, foamy head. Head dissipates quickly, leaves a medium lasting head that eventually fades.
Cold, it has an astringent alcohol aroma. After it warms it displays more of the chocolate and malt in the nose.
Taste is very chocolaty, no real alcoholic presence, which is good. It is full bodied, but there's also a sense of being watered down. Might just be my imagination, but there's a distinct lack of flavor at the end of this beer, right before the smokiness hits on the finish.
This is actually fairly drinkable, a very good stout to demo to non-craft beer drinkers to get their taste acquainted to a stout.
This isn't a kicking stout, but that isn't necessarily bad. Still, I've had better in the past.
