A: Could be the blackest beer I've ever seen. Definitely the darkest head I've ever seen--almost a maple color.
S: Stong roasted malt aroma.
T: On a blind taste test, I would almost guess this is a Porter, the roasted malt is so strong. Very astringent in the finish and dry as well. Some chocolate and coffee notes make an appearance, but this thing is roasted, bordering on charred.
M: Great body, very dry finish.
D: A little too roasty for me. It kind of overpowers everything else in the beer.

Appreance- Looks absolutely scrumptious with choclately tones and smooth stout medium head

Smell- Aromas just do not match the look, there is a faint nutty choclate mix, hazelnut maybe, but overall the smell is not punctual or alluring

Taste- Smooth, easiest to drink stout I have ever experienced; however, it does not pop at all and finishes kinda boring

Mouthfeel- Goes down soooo smooth, gentle and light

Overall- Good solid beer, but not Rogue worthy and defiantly not 90+...great winter drinking beer

Ebony with a pillowy clay colored head. Near unparalleled lace and retention. Near perfect.

Aroma is dark roast malt with an oaty smooth acidity. Tastes dark and roasty and fairly monotone. Good, but a one trick pony. Body is terribly watery, the Pacman yeast (which I usually like) just doesn't fit with this beer.

Good but unengaging due to lack of depth. The mouthfeel is as hearty as a Hawiian death metal band.
