Bottle was purchased at The Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg, VA on a recent visit to southern Virginia.
Poured and sampled from a DFH Signature Glass
A - Beer pours a totally opaque, midnight black color. A nice, foamy, beige colored one finger head on the initial pour. Lots of sticky lacing left after drinking.
S - A roasted malt, coffee-like aroma. Smells really good.
T - A very tasty stout that has a ton of flavor. The beer is a mixture of heavily roasted malts, coffee, and a sweet chocolate taste that ends with a mild bitterness. A very smooth, creamy brew. The ABV is lurking there in the background but it never overpowers the taste or enjoyment of the beer.
M - A thicker consistency. Low to medium carbonation.
O - This is my first beer from Mission Brewery and I was impressed. It is a top-notch stout that hits all the right notes. I'd gladly have this again. Recommended.

Perfection in a bottle.
Pours half a finger of head, pitch black and thick. The head is the darkest brown I've ever seen. Dissipates in about a minute, but leaves some light lacing around the glass.
Smells like chocolate, roasted malt, and mystery. I want to drink it NOW!!!
Taste is complex yet you can pick apart the separate flavors. Much like the smell: chocolate, some dark dark roasted flavors, and the perfect balance of hops finishes it out and lingers in your mouth.
Mouthfeel is in the middle of the road, just the right thickness for this style.
This must be my favorite. Every time I see it in the store I buy it. Can't get enough of this beer!
