Bottle says 7.5% ABV
A: Pitch black with a medium-to-dark brown, fluffy head that fades quickly leaving behind very little lace or retention.
S: Roasted and slightly smoky malt but a strange earthy/metallic aroma. Nothing special.
T: Great roasted malt flavors paired with a milky creaminess that is very nice. Some dark chocolate, sweet caramelized sugar, super dark roast coffee. Perfect body.
M: Very smooth, almost velvety, but cloying in the finish like almost every Cream/Milk/Sweet Stout. Carbonation is spot on.
O: Solid Stout with some good flavors. Accurate for the style and an enjoyable bottle to drink. Would I seek it out again? Depends what else is available.

This is a good-looking stout, decently thick without appearing to be overbearing, a moderate viscosity to it. It has a touch of a red sheen in a very dark brown body. The head, medium brown, forms a sturdy crown roughly a finger tall that sits stubbornly for the duration and leaves a mix of ringing, patching, netting and spotting.
A rich malts backbone provides plenty of roast with a bit of creamy sweetness, some coffee and cocoa particular to a big stout of the dark and dark roast varieties. A whiff of dark fruits eases into the end.
Lots of roast and char manages to avoid astringency. The only thing I'd ask for is a touch more sweetness (there's a little) and a less subtle lactose addition. As such, it's a great stout.
It's thick and rich with a moderate viscosity that gives great body and smoothness without sitting like a brick. There's just the slightest crispness, enough to keep it lively and interesting, and the smoothness pulls even into the roasty finish.

4.4/5 rDev +12.8%

Pours jet black with a tan head
Smells of roasted grain, dark toasted coffee and burnt chocolate.
Tastes of burnt coffee, roasted grains and a hint of chocolate, firm hop bitterest finish. Don't get much sweetness as in other sweet stouts. Sweetness emerges a little as it warms, but not much.
A good amount of carbonation gives your tongue a tingle when it hits your mouth nag brings out more so the bitterness.
Overall, a great stout, I like them dark and roasty and this one delivers.
