Bottle I brought to share at Skuter's tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, coffee bean, char, and metallic aromas. Taste is much the same with bittersweet cocoa, char, and burnt coffee flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with lots of super roasty cocoa and coffee qualities all around.

Serving type: bottle.

Pours a dark black kola hue with a chocolate laced two finger head and lacing everywhere, the smell is dark Belgian chocolate, strong coffee and dark malts, the mouthfeel is full bodied, silky smooth with moderate carbonation and has tastes of dark chocolate predominantly mixed with black coffee and roasty malts and finished with a toasty bitter sweetness and overall quite a nice stout cheers.
