Appearance: Great dark brown color, opaque. Looks quite enticing.
Smell: Great smell; notes of malts, chocolate, and oatmeal come out to me.
Taste/mouthfeel: Excellent taste. Very earthy and full of malt. A strong roasted flavor that is full and rich.
Overall: This is an excellent beer and overall a great representation of a stout.
That being said, nothing about this beer is exceptional; it is simply a solid stout for the money.

Sampled last night on 8/9/14. had this once before back in 2011. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a very deep dark brown in color and is close to being pitch black. Looks great! Has a nice 1+-finger beige thick head. A good amount of lacing is seen with each sip that sticks to the inside of the glass also. Perfect carbonation for a stout. The aroma is of roasted malts for the most part but nothing else. The taste of the roasted malts comes through at first then followed up by a very bitter aftertaste, almost like drinking a strong I.P.A. (India Pale Ale). After a few more sips it didn't get any better. Way to bitter and after a good hour I ended up pouring about half of it out. One of the worst stouts I had drank. To me, the best part of this one was the pour and look in the glass.
