Holy crap this beer is dark, it looks like molasses. The head is a nice one and a half finger in width, and it is probably the darkest head I have ever seen, it looks like super dark chocolate milk. Body is pitch black. On the nose you get all the characteristics of a regular stout, chocolate, heavy malt notes and not much hop, but you also get a sweet maybe even piny smell, it's a very weird smell. Im going to be honest the sweet piny smell doesn't smell too appetizing, but it also doesn't smell too dominant. Man, that is a smooth stout, it flows perfectly from front to middle to end. It isn't as thick as I like my stouts, but I'm coming to realize that's normal for eastern beers. I mean on one hand it's just so smooth, but on the other hand there isn't a whole lot of flavor going on, yeah you get the malt and the chocolate but it is very small overall. In the end you get that sweet, sour taste I was picking up on in the smell, but it is very very small and not unpleasant or anything. The taste is ok overall. As for drinkability, that is very very high because it is so smooth, mouthfeel I have to downgrade because like I said I like my stouts thicker than this. Overall a good beer.

poured into a tulip glass
(Side note: The production date on the bottle says it was made over 4 years ago)
a - Black body with dark orange tint. Two finger fluffy head. Head color is caramel. Head deflates slowly in the center and then later on the edges to form a half finger, dark latté colored head.
s - Creamy and smokey-cigar smell. Bourbon notes.
t - cream and oats start. Middle is nutty/coffee bean. Finish is milk, coffee, and toffee.
m - Full and smooth. Linger feels like milk or cream lines the mouth
o - Head wasn't as rich and full as I usually like in a stout. The flavor was simple, but tasty. Mouthfeel of the body was very nice, and the best part of this beer.
