Pours a syrupy black, no head at all. Big aromas of dark-roasted coffee, dark chocolate, ripe fruit, with an earthy, musty sort of smell underneath. There's more carbonation than meets the eye, lending a sandpapery mouthfeel. Roasted flavors are big--there's a huge malt profile here. Coffee-like and caramel maltiness blend with the roasted flavors, but there is also a strong bitterness that really helps prop the brew up. I wouldn't want more than one at any given time, but this is a very flavorful, interesting stout.
