Pours a used motor oil brown/black with a frothy, lingering mocha head.

Milk chocolate, toasted malt, deeply roasted malt, and lactose form the aroma. Smells very sweet. Chocolate dominates.

Chocolate carries through in the flavor, dominating throughout, initially. The finish is fairly roasty, a little bitter, and just a touch acrid. Deeply toasted nuts surface in the aftertaste. There’s an underlying dark fruit character that surfaces initially, tart cherries, which bows quickly to the roast malt backbone. Roast and chocolate battle back and forth.

Body is full, rich, and creamy, with modest carbonation, and surprisingly well-hidden alcohol warmth.

Not overly bitter or roasty, with a great chocolate presence. The tinge of tartness adds complexity to break the monotony of the chocolate. Very rich malt character.

Bottled. Pours pitch black with an average sized, creamy head. Aroma of slightly roasted malt and note of chocolate, light coffee and vanilla. Sweet flavor that ends up quite dry with notes of malt bitterness. Medium bodied, oily to creamy texture and soft carbonation. An excellent stout.
