Enjoyed at World of Beer in a snifter.
Pitch black, as dark as the bottom of the ocean. One inch of thick cream like sea foam. Light, sandy tan.
Light aroma. A little anise, torched bread, dark chocolate. Bitter, black stuff.
Same deal here. Very black, with malts burnt to a crisp. A little acrid, with licorice, a touch of cocoa. Splashes of sweetness at the swallow and a touch of oatmeal as it warms.
Medium body. Smooth, with velvety carbonation. Only a hint of alcohol heat, but more than a hint of burnt bitterness.
Meh. Too light, too bitter and burnt for my tastes.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured a black body with good head on top of an aroma that has dark fruit for some reason, booziness to it, a thick aroma of roasted malts and a little bit of sweetness. The beer is chewey it's so thick but passes along smooth thanks to a little bit woodiness in it (swear I even get a touch of vanilla and bourbon). Mostly a balance of sweet malts like molasses and a roasted, even coffee esque dry malt base. Again, like aroma, I seem to pick up a little bit of figs and plums. This is a pretty good stout with interesting notes coming in from everywhere.
