Dark, dark dark! Thick head that is also dark brown and sticks around for a while. Smells a little sweet for a stout, but nice.
The mouthfeel is a little harsh, with only the hops staying on the tongue for very long. I hesitate to use the word "stouty" with respect to a stout but that's what it is, a dark rough mix of hop, char and wood. It's like drinking an alcoholic stump. If you're not a stout fan, this won't win you over but it's good at what it is.
Serving type: growler

BTL date Sept 11, 2012
Rich chocolate torte pour with minimal heading.
Initial nose of malt, black coffee, sweet cream, dark cocoa and hint of clove.
Strong hop presence is dry with smoky oak notes. Sweet cream, vanilla and dark chocolate dominate. Chocolate frosting coming to mind. Coffee ground evident.
Mouthfeel is of dry oak, dark cocoa, and black coffee coating the tongue and lingering. I know I mentioned pleasant earlier but this is very forward and unabated.
Overall a nice stout that you would love for the bittering and drying effects. This is not really for the sweet tooth. Younger bottles tend to be raw and this is one to stow away for awhile. Young version I would give it an overall 3.5. An unrefined brew that can broken but still brash for the liking.
