The body appears jet black and leaves a thin, cocoa brown head that eventually fades to nothing. Aroma is primarily a low-intensity cocoa with some charred grain notes. The taste exudes a big, malty flavor infused with baker's chocolate, hints of dates and prunes, charcoal, and a slightly boozy sensation. The feel is heavy-bodied, slick and smooth; dusty dryness.
The beer develops a more alcohol-like character the more you drink yet does a nice job of presenting and maintaining a rich, thick, tasty RIS kind of flavor. Too bad its looks are flat and the aroma rather tame. Nothing world-class about this one, but it ain't no weak, forgettable beer either...it's no 'psycho' but not necessarily for the faint of heart...

Sampled at the Great International Beer Fest sponsored by Elite Brands.
Pours a dark ruby red, very dark. Looks thick and rich, not much of a head, if you can call it that.
Oof. Aroma is booze and nail polish remover. Hot, burn....not a hint of anything RIS
Flavor is just a mess. The booze kills everything. Cocoa is burnt and barely alive. Malt is putrid.
Not even a sipper beer. Too hot, too messy

Let me start by saying that I am not a huge stout fan. I am trying to delve more and more into these beers as I am wanting to start a mini cellar. I tried this in a bottle and had it served into a small tasting glass.
A- It is like dark motor oil. The way a stereo typical stout looks (IMO) Has a much darker head that most of the stouts that I have seen. Very little head compared to most beers and the head disappears after about 30 seconds.
S- It also has the stout-esce type of smell with a bit of a bittersweet chocolate small on the end.
T- This is the second stout I have had in a couple of days. I thought this one was much better than the other I tried (will review the other one after this).
M- This stout has a very smooth, thick viscosity to it (like watered down maple syrup).
O- I think this stout tastes much better than the Wells and Young stout I had earlier. I hope DL, BCBS or the proprietor is better than this one.
