Jet-black in color, this monster smells of coffee and chocolate. The taste is much of the same, with hints of creamy toffee and roasted malt. Smooth and delicious, this medium bodied ale is all about the malts, but has enough hop bitterness to be balanced.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a BrewDog cervoise glass. Can is at least a year old.

A: Dark and cola-like, with light head.

S: Smells oddly fruity and shot through with boozy whiffs.

T: It is really fruity, and kind of flat. But still, it's tasty. Aftertaste has hints licorice.

M: Smooth and flat. Almost silky.

O: Good, but not great. I remember it having more bite and bitterness.

Pours dark brown with a thin light brown head. Smells of roasted malts, chocolate and maybe a touch of cedar. Tastes very malty up front, roast, chocolate, a little burnt/ash. Definite medium body with creamy texture, tastes quite a bit like a milk stout. Nice malty aftertaste with very light hop bitterness. Excellent brew.

Best stout I've ever tried. Is it too sweet for people? It's like a desert beer.
