Found at Rustico in Arlington, VA.
Pours pitch black, but not as oil-like as a TenFIDY. Sizeable light tan head that remains throughout. A good looking stout. Nose is overbalanced with woody smoke, not really enticing, and I like a smoky beer.
Taste is woody and chocolate. Smoke is strong, but it just lacks a certain balance that would make it an even better beer. Body is a little light for what it could be. Overall a good beer, just not a great one.
Serving type: on-tap

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!
