341ml bottle poured into a Guinness pint glass.
Appearance: darkest, blackest body I've ever seen on a beer aside from Palo Santo Marron. Resembles printing ink. Thin tan head turns into a fine, grainy lacing that covers the entire glass.
Smell: oatmeal, maple sugar, burnt grains, floral hops.
Taste: roasted malt, dark chocolate, espresso, and a piney hop bitterness in the finish. The hops took me by surprise - I don't usually notice them in a stout. There's a nice black pepper dryness with hints of coffee and oatmeal in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: clean, smooth body and a dry, complete finish.
Overall: one of the few 'session' stouts that I've encountered. I could drink 5-6 of these no problem. Plenty of oatmeal, chocolate, and espresso in the smell and taste and the hop bitterness adds complexity. A tasty, original take on the style.

Unbelievably good beer.
Color is an extremely dark brown with moderately brown, thick foam.
Smell is good, although nothing totally spectacular. Notes of chocolate, oatmeal, and malt.
Taste is outstanding. Medium roasted malt, moderately strong oatmeal, chocolate, coffee, and a hint of hops. Mouthfeel is very full bodied.
Overall an excellent beer.
