Served in a Snifter

Eyes
Rich dark brown, nearly black body. The thickness of this brew is apparent right from the pour. Very thin bubbly brown head. A sparse amount of soapy lacing throughout.

Nose
Overall a very sweet and earthy nose. Dark chocolate and molasses make up the sweet notes. Earthier notes of grains and coffee tame the strong initial sweetness.

Mouth
Tastes somewhat like a dark chocolate truffle shelled in a gigantic roasted coffee bean. The heavy hit of sweet notes were followed by a surprising hopped-out finish. This did a pretty good job of masking the alcohol. Speaking of alcohol, a bit broke through in the finish but it was well-masked for the most part. Rich, full body. Low carbonation.

Overall
A tasty and complex slow-sipper.

I'm a fan of the variants but for some reason I just didn't enjoy this one much. Harsh bitterness and somewhat thin mouthfeel. Pretty hoppy for a stout as well

A - Pours an oily black with a very dark brown head, dissipates down to a film. Whispy lacing.
S - A nutty, fatty, bready, cereal aroma. Espresso, caramel, toffee and marzipan. Very pleasant aroma.
T - Slightly sweet malts, toffee, chocolate, coffee and a boozy warming finish. Nice creamy mouthfeel.
O - A damned good stout, would be excellent on a cold winter day.
