I poured this beer from a 22oz. bottle into a tulip glass, forming about 1 finger of a deep caramel/rootbeer brown head. The color was black at night, no red hues like other stouts, just pure black. The head dies down soon to a small line. The smell is packed with roasted coffee and chocolate aromas. Best smelling stout I've ever had! The taste is a direct reflection of the smell, smooth coffee flavor with a little smokiness. You also get all 69 IBUs of hops from this one. The hops have a nice bite, very delicious. The mouthfeel is good and strong. One thing about this beer as I drink it, there is absolutely no lace on the glass. The drinkability is alright, this is a good finishing beer. It also gets better as it warms.
