330 ml bottle. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet and milk chocolate, dark fruit and molasses. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some coffee and oats noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's creamy and slick with low/moderate carbonation. The 10.4% ABV is well hidden. I think it's a good overall stout, I wouldn't mind trying this one again in the future. $5.25 a bottle. (549 characters)

Pours pitch black with a small head.
Nose shows roasted malt, bready malt, cocoa and liquorice.
Flavours include roasted malt and chocolate with a balancing sweetness. Quite a dry roasty finish though. (201 characters)

Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a nice large foamy had dark brown head with excellent retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of sweet black chocolates notes with light roasted malt profile is quite enjoyable. Taste is a dominated by black chocolate with quite a bit of residual sugar notes and some roasted malt with a light dusty finish. Body is about average for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Enjoyable and well brewed but maybe a tad too sweet for my taste buds. (505 characters)

Poured into a Stone Brewery flute glass. Pours pitch black with a half finger light brown head that dissipates to a thin film and thick ring around the glass leaving slippery lacing. Aroma of toasted malt, licorice, hints of chocolate and molasses. Flavor follows aroma, with toasted malt with hints of char, licorice, light coffee and chocolate. Finish is much milder toasted malt and light hop bittering, but interestingly a lingering aftertaste of nicely balanced toasty malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium bodied with mild creaminess from the oatmeal. A dense, flavorful dark stout that has an interesting flavor progression, appearing to finish more attenuated than the start, but ultimately leaving a long, lingering, satisfying and nicely melded flavor. Alcohol is well hidden. Very enjoyable, glad I chanced upon this bottle. (832 characters)

Bottle at Tørst, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a finger high tan head that died down and left a large patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark malts and yeast are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and has some notes of roasted malts in the background. Hints of anise are also perceptible.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is strong but doesn't taste nearly as strong as its alcohol content. Nevertheless, it is a sipping beer. (627 characters)

A: Dark brown to black with a ruby tinge on the extreme edge only under an intense light. A finger of rusty reddish brown chocolaty rich looking head. Some carbonation visible on the edge of the glass. A foamy lacing that doesn’t stick to the glass.

S: Cocoa, chocolate, banana, a light smokiness, light floral quality as well as a meaty quality, not umami but rather like pepperoni.

T: Cocoa, chocolate, umami, light smokiness, an acidic quality, again a sort of umami popcorn like quality that is pleasant but completely unexpected. Alcohol present. A light sweetness as well balancing the sour presensce.

M: Thick, oily body with a little fine bubbled carbonation. A slightly tart acidic quality too.

O: Interesting brew. Found this in Chiang Mai at Beer Box, drank in Kunming March 24th, 2015. Definitely a different form of this style, unique in itself, just not topping the best. (901 characters)
