A: This pours a deep, dark black color. No light escapes. A small, tan foamy head dissipates quickly.

S: Chocolate and alcohol with a faint fruit undertone.

T: Okay, this is a pretty good stout. I get an immediate dark chocolate taste, maybe a slight coffee touch. A licorice undertone is present, but is subtle, as is a faint alcohol presence that amplifies ever so slightly as the beer warms up a bit..

F: Thick and creamy, as any stout should be.

O: This is not a competitor to the really "Big" stouts, but it is certainly a welcome member to a market saturated with IPA's. It lacks any single defining quality that makes it stand out above the rest, but it is more then worthy of a spot on the shelf.
