Poured from a 64oz growler into a snifter

A: Pours a completely opaque black with just a touch of brown. Tan colored head sticks around for a few minutes. Moderate splotchy lacing.

S: Deeply roasty. Coffee and some burnt smoky notes.

T: Still very roasty, but with a marked amount of rich, dark chocolate. Roasted coffee creates a great mocha flavor. Subtle notes of smoke and licorice.

M: Fairly smooth and medium thick. Easier drinking than a lot of comparable stouts. Low carbonation.

O: Delicious beer. Coffee forward with a hefty chocolate malt backbone.
