12 oz bottle served in a snifter.

Pours near black and thick looking; like over-used motor oil. Weak head. A layer of dark sediment left on the bottom of the bottle despite a full pour.

Aroma: exceptionally appealing if fairly simple, with more medium roasted grain than expected.

Flavor: Excellent sweet/bitter balance, with the light sweetness overcome by mild bitterness by the finish. Lingering dark roasted malts and black coffee in the aftertaste. A hint of dark chocolate.

Pours pretty well pitch black, like motor oil, with a fine head of deep tan foam. Virtually no lace, though!

Nose is bittersweet cocoa nibs, dark berries underneath. Burnt malts galore!

Taste is smooth — charred malts and dark fruit duking it out on the palate for dominance. Finishes with more of the bittersweet malts and a hint of alcohol warmth. This is a delicious and smooth stout that approaches some Russian Imperial Stouts, even. Superb.
