Motor oil black with a similar viscosity. A very thin head bubbles up after the pour and recedes to barely a ring.
A burnt aroma dominates with some carmel notes.
Sweet and creamy at first and then burnt and astringent like a strong coffee. The aftertaste is carmel.
Smooth. Low carbonation. Thick.
Very nice. I like a nice head on beer but everything else is very good.

How clever they are, One, Too, Tres, Fore and Plead the 5th! I am holding Fore in abeyance, awaiting a smoke-a-thon one of these days. In the interim, another of my bottle backlog is annihilated, but still no end in sight.
This was visually stunning coming out of the bottle and into my glass! It looked like high viscosity engine oil, 40-weight, as it did its pseudo-cascade and then formed a finger of dense, deep-brown head with excellent retention. Color was a deep, dark-brown (SRM = 44) allowing zero light penetration. THIS is their interpretation of a Cream Stout?!? Nose was rich and chocolaty, more towards dark chocolate with a charcoal smokiness. Mouthfeel was big, full and creamy and the taste was incredibly smoky, which while appealing to me, is stylistically incorrect. Why would they make Fore and this? I left a bit in the bottle so as to be able to stir up the lees for an additional pour, but it really did not change things by much, except to intensify the smokiness, if that is possible. Finish was bitter, smoky, dry, all of which adds up to something other than a Milk/Sweet Stout. I am not a style maven, by any stretch, but this was a wolf in sheep's clothing.
