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.

Bottle poured into snifter. Pours black with approx. one finger of dark tan head that disappears quickly. Aroma of dark chocolate and a little coffee. Taste is similar to the aroma with roasted malt and char. Kind of tastes like dark chocolate over coffee beans. A little hop comes through as well as other tastes, excluding the vanilla, i never really tasted vanilla. The mouth feel is good accompanied by the warm alcohol presence.. A pretty good beer for such a high ABV.

It pours midnight black with a 1 finger milk chocolate orangeish head that doesn't stick around. No lacing.
Smells of cocoa powder, char, cappuccino.
The taste is mostly cocoa powder. So much of it. There is a slight warming alcohol booziness that adds to the smooth and creamy mouth feel. Roasted malts and char are very present. chocolate liquor. No vanilla. Cocoa powder and unsweetened coffee bitterness on the finish.
This is like drinking dark chocolate covered espresso beans. The vanilla is not really present at all, which is a bit of a disappointment. The chocolate is super dark, and the coffee is very bitter. Its pretty good, but I wouldn't buy it again. Trying it once though - I definitely recommend it. Don't expect any vanilla.
