Very dark, almoust black, engine oil with just a little head that's on the top like golden-brown whipped cream.

Nose: Coffee, toffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, mocha, leather, kakao and dark syrup. Almoust a little sour nose.

Taste: Wow! This is f-ing awesome! Sweet coffee, oatmeal, brownies, boubon , vanilla, red berries and dried fruit.

Mouth: Large complex body with smooth, silky taste. Very soft carbonation.

This is almoust a perfect stout. I'm glad I bought 7 bottles (six to cellar).

Appearane - The beer was deep black with mocha bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass.

Aroma - The booze jumps out in the aroma with notes of vanilla and oak in the background.

Taste- The initial impression is boozy. The booze is a little sticky and hot in the aftertaste. The chocolate notes that were detectable in the beginning fade.

Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel in this stout is near perfect. It coats the tongue and lingers nicely.

Overall - Though a little pricey, this is an easily accessible yet solid version of the style.
