Pours a dark brown/near black with a 2 finger tan head that quickly recedes, while leaving some pretty decent sticky lacing;.
Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate with a whiff of vanilla.or caramel.
Very dry, the barest hint of sweetness. Flavor of burnt malt/coffee. The light sweetness and the bitter burnt malt give a hint of dark chocolate. Smoky.
Seemed rather thin at first, but the feel improved . Call it medium thick. Somewhat frothy in carbonation, pleasant. Lightly warming.
Aroma was strong upfront, but the taste and mouthfeel seemed a bit weak the first few swallows. Thankfully, the beer settled down and became quite pleasing to drink. I had to knock a couple of categories up a notch. Definitely worth trying again.

A - Poured vigorously into a pub glass, massive pillowy beige head and deep ebony tone of the body. Head is firm and doesn't slosh about and stays steady and heavy. Scattered lacing around glass.
S - Huge tone of dark malt and some burnt coffee. Hints of caramel and more complex chocolate malt on the nose.
T - Rich chocolate malt wallop, tones of coffee and some smokiness. Lots of malted barley, some tones of coffee cake, a little chocolate brownie sweetness, some pretzel saltiness, and even a hint of chocolate butter smoothness.
M - Thick and rich, very heavy mouthfeel, but has a very light side to it.
O - Overall, a very drinkable stout. Great dark smells and flavors and wonderful full bodied appearance.

A- coffee black with light quarter finger head. poor lacing.
S- dark roast coffee smell. charred malts and hop presence.
F- flavor is same as the nose. The dark bold roast coffee flavor coats all the way down.
M- thick and creamy. Highly carbonated for a thick stout.
O- not a bad stout. an average and I wouldn't mind another.

A- a nearly opaque black with a nice creamy tan head. Head has good retention and leaves some nice lacing
S- mild malt with some strong earthy hops
T- some more robust malt flavors (slight coffee) with some nice hops blended in.
M- not as thick on the palate, but not too thin. Just slightly so
O- it's a decent stout with a moderately complex flavor. Not stunning, but not lacking, either.
