Bought a case to share over the weekend, it was a good choice since we had no fridge... This is a nice stout in general, colour is blackish brown with a big brown head that is nice and fluffy and takes a while to go down enough to drink. Then again I think I poured it way too fast so it got all excited and super foamy at first. That's ok. It didnt smell like much to me, but it was roasty and kind of hoppy, some coffee aroma in there. Taste was very good, very roasty and toasty, coffee, teeny bit of molasses or something sweet, but just a hint, and hops. Definitely more hoppy than sweet, but not at all bitter. Mouthfeel was towards the thin side to me but just about perfect, and drinkability is good because of this. I was happy with this stout and would get it again.
