Pours dark, with a nice head the pat retains lighter color. Much lacing.
S- Barley, chocolate
T- roasted barley, chocolate toffee, with. Good chunk of hop for a stout. The hop lingers more than most stouts. Hops slightly enter the nose.
Feel busier than most stouts.
Overall a great stoud with the roasted barley, chocolate notes and the hop really stands out but does not go too far for a stout. I likey.

12oz bottle poured into a beer mug. Wonderful colour! It was hard for me to smell. Taste, well tastes like roasted grain, nice amount of bitter. Mouthfeel is hearty. A stout well done.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a half of a finger of caramel-colored head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very aromatic, with lots of bready, roasted malt, imparting notes of toasted dark bread, freshly ground coffee beans, dark molasses, a touch of dark chocolate, brown sugar and a touch of subtle smoke.

Taste: Exactly like the aroma, with lots of bready, roasted malt, imparting notes of toasted dark bread, freshly ground coffee beans, dark molasses, a touch of dark chocolate, brown sugar and a touch of subtle smoke.

Mouthfeel: Chewy, creamy and smooth, as there is no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 5.8%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a delicious stout! Great flavors of roasted malt, subtle coffee and smoke, brown sugar-like sweetness and dark chocolate. Delicious!
