The color is black. That is if black were mostly black with a brown twinge . . . Completely opaque with a beautiful brown head. The nose is of very bitter dark chocolate, coupled with a wonderful aroma of medium roasted, coarsely ground coffee beans . . . Wow!

The beer smells so good that I have to dive in immediately! Pummels the palate with liquefied chocolate . . . Fudge, molasses, vanilla, and mocha. Oak tannin present. This beer is ridiculous. By the time you are getting a grip on the malt, which pleasantly assaults your palate, the hops are beginning to replace the sweetness of the malt with intense green bitterness that intensifies as the beer finishes. The beer finishes for minutes . . . All the while, keeping all of the previously mentioned flavors present, and somehow getting more bitter.

This beer starts off very dark and finishes with a lot of hop greenness. At this exact moment, this is one of the most complete, complex, beers that I have ever enjoyed . . . Luxurious! The beautiful coffee aroma and flavor serves as a reminder that this beer is caffeinated. Oh yes, as I discovered, this beer will perk you right up!

When i tried this beer i had it with Pork ribs on a hot summer evening a few years back.. i would say this beer is the Go to Stout for All ice cream and Milkshake /fusions if you wanna call it that.

The Pour: is Velvety and the head is smooth.. i love how it comes out in the Glass.. im always diggin through the stout pile at Total Wine to fine some chocolate Yeti or this if i had say between the two. i copped this as a sale one lucky friday and it was only 4 duckets as opposed to 5.75.. which still isnt bad.


The taste: is Rich, heavy, and silky leaves nothing to be desired the heavy roast and oaked espresso hits you as you relax while sipping. you swallow and the smokey after effects soothes away at your finish.

The look in the glass: the head is awesome if you pour it perfectly! if you get a 22 ounce yeti get a big stout glass from somewhere and Drink this like a beast..! PLEASE!!
