Poured into a Great Divide balloon glass.

Look: Opaque blackness, the color of the darkest dark chocolate. A mocha colored head recedes somewhat quickly leaving a thin collar, while very light random lines and odd shapes of lacing remain on the glass.

Aroma: Chocolate and cocoa come through very well with a nice woody oak note. A hint of spiciness.

Taste: Perfectly balanced between roasted coffee, chocolate notes, and oak barrels. Not one flavor dominates the other, although the finish has a lot more oak in it, and perhaps a touch of alcohol on the tongue, but not much.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth.

Overall: This was a true delight. I was fearing there wood be too much wood and not enough of the other flavors. I was wrong, it's very well balanced.

Pours beautiful dark brown-black and very thick and viscous. Really clings to the edge of the glass, with a dark brown finger of foam.

Dark chocolate, heavy roasted/burnt/smoky notes, and a boat load of wood and earthy aroma.

Roasted/burnt flavors, slight coffee-like notes, and again tons of oak/wood and earthy flavors. Too much so for my taste.

Heavy-bodied, light-medium carbonation, earthy, bitter, and oh so dry.

Overall, I should have expected the heavy oak/wood aroma and flavor, but this was just a bit too extreme for my taste, still very good regardless.

Black pour with brown head (draft in 12oz tulip); strong coffee bean nose; medium mouthfeel; exhale is roasted coffee bean fighting with oak; alcohol well hidden (10%);finish is dry wood and coffee grounds-too much coffee?

This beer is unquestionable overhyped. It's an incredibly dry stout -- to the point where I had to chase this with water. Some what like drinking soy sauce.
