Poured this 750 mL brown bottle into a New Belgium globe. The body was opaque black/brown. The head was dense, tan in color, and stayed throughout the drink.

The smell was cocoa powder and damp fresh grain.

The taste was of overripe stone fruit. A nice char met the mild alcohol. Deeply fruity with hints of metal. Creamy coffee and cocoa. Bright rich grains shine through. The char bitterness lasted a long time in the finish. However, there was a sweet residue on my lips after each sip.

The body was smooth and rich. Medium to mild carbonation.

Inky black in color with good amount of light brown head and a thick collar. Aroma is very roasty, some dark sugar, some black currant, great earthiness. Thick body, silty mouthfeel and low carbonation. Taste is charred, deep earth, great use of roasted malt like all SN stouts, some coffee and mahogany-like wood.
