Poured from a 22 oz. bottle, into a pint glass. The beer poured a jet black, with a nice full 1 inch dark tan head, that left light lacing on the glass. The aroma is of dark chocolate, with a slight burnt smell in the background. The taste is great! Dark chocolate and coffee, sweet, but not overdone. The mouthfeel is full, just the way a stout should be. This beer is high drinkable. Maybe not more than one or two in a session, but easily an enjoyable beer, and one worth beginning a session with.

Poured into a pint glass

Wow what a great lookin beer, black as the night with a chocolate colored head. Lots of lacing and the head stays for a while (shared with my friend, his pour's head was a lot less though and left quicker)

smells like a dark chocolate and hops. Very sweet and appealing.
It taste's amazing. Very balanced with mostly dark chocolate and coffee notes. There's also a slight bitterness and alcohol in the finish (but it compliments it very well).

mouthfeel is nice but not as thick as I thought it might be considering it's a very dark stout.
I couldn't drink too much of this mostly considering the price. However, if it was free i'd drink it all day long.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 22 oz bomber into a pint glass.

Appearance: entirely black with a very thick, very rich dark foam head. Quite pleasing.

Smell: very pleasant solid chocolate aroma.

Taste: big chocolate at the outset which fades into a nicely bitter stout with continued chocolate flavor but added coffee notes. Outstanding.

Mouthfeel: medium-thick body with a low level of carbonation appropriate for the style. Very good.

Drinkability: as stouts go, this would make a great session beer.
