Midnight black in color and impenetrable to light. A half inch mahogany head is sitting on top. Brussels lacing. Aroma of bitter roasted barley is intense but there's also a light sweetness from the chocolate and a light plum note. There is an intense bitterness from roasted barley. The back of the palate is evened out with a hint of sweetness from the chocolate and in the finish the bitterness appears again. The mouth is creamy and moderately carbonated.

Pours a big, thick, dark brown head with excellent retention and long, fat lacing down the glass. Brew is almost perfectly black.
Big aroma of roasted barley and chocolate, in some order. Strong caramel malts and a hint of oak.
Very nice, roasty, smooth, rich stout. Lots of dark cocoa, and fistfuls of roasted barley. A hint of overripe dark fruit on the back-end. A little bit of cream, vanilla, and charred oak, but very minor. Very nice peppery heat on the back-end, as well. Slightly earthy hops provide some balance. The dominant flavors are without question roasted barley and chocolate.
Smooth, thick, creamy mouthfeel, lively without sting, no foaming, and almost no alcohol heat. Long, sticky retention.
This is a very tasty dessert-style stout, but it's dark and roasty enough - and the chocolate blended so well - that it could just as easily serve as a breakfast stout. Very tasty and well-crafted stout.
