Pours a pitch black. The head is very creamy with a nice light brown/tan color. The first smell I found was black olives. Not sure why, but it was surprising. It isn't exactly a bad thing. Other than that, there is roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. The taste has much more coffee to it than the smell. The roasted malt is a nice compliment as is the dark chocolate. Caramelized sugar and molasses show up as well. Some strange tastes I found were black olives and lake water.

The mouthfeel is lacking a body and true taste, it's kind of thin. It still coats the mouth with dark chocolate, which is nice, but the black olives and lake water linger on the palate. The drinkability is one of the better aspects of this beer. It seems light for a stout, so it goes down well. The chocolate and malt aren't too overwhelming or sweet, so I enjoyed the whole 22oz. bomber. I think I need to stop drinking so many Imperial Stouts, because they are making me think regular Stouts are too thin. I'll try this again because, even though everyone's tastes are different, I expected this to be much better. I'm assuming I had a bad bottle. The store I bought it from isn't the cleanest and is known for some older bottles.

Thanks to BuckeyeNation for this quote: "I will make it a felony to drink small beer"
-King Henry VI, part II (act iv, scene ii)

A: Black, heavy without highlights, abundant dark tan, rocky head, not so much lacing.

S: Hoppy stout, ala Boris. Serious char, wood, chocolate, latte.

T: Taste is intense. Espresso like with hops. Grass, hay, wood, charcoal, coffee. wine-like. This is a great stout with great intensity. meditation beer.

MF: Creamy, dense, woody, flinty, good feel. Not as oily as TedFidy, similar to Boris, Narwhal.
Not alcoholic.

One of my favorites. (But I love hoppy stouts). Best from Rogue.
