A-Pours brown, blatantly not black. Looks like a Belgian Dark Ale. Head is darker tan spittle.

S-Not very Stout-like. Dried, dark fruits. It has some chocolate and roast but not as much as I want.

T-Again, more of the dried, dark fruits. Lots of caramel and molasses. Slight roast and a nearly nonexistent chocolate flavor.

M-Not thick. Slight bubbles. A bit boozy.

O/D-Not really a Stout in my opinion. More of a big Beligan Dark Ale. I was not a big fan of this.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a Fullers snifter glass.

Pours a black colour, with a lively off-white head. Nice lacing.

Smells dark and rich, roasted malts and dark fruits.

Tastes of roasted and burnt malts, with rich and dark, almost sour fruit, and bitter coffee, with a large hit of booze bringing up the rear. Very warming. Nice thick mouthfeel.

Overall yet another pleasant surprise from Brewdog. Getting to like them now.
