A classic, and probably my all time favourite to date. I love this beer!
Pours a dark, dark red (almost black), with a gorgeous chocolate milkshake head that fades very slowly as I drink the beer. Swirling it leaves residue on the glass, which for me is always a sign of good things to come.
Smell is cocoa and coffee, strong grains, and a bit of alcohol.
Taste is simply amazing -- sweet chocolate and coffee, yeast and caramel, with a very low carbonation. Mouthfeel is buttery and extremely pleasant, and the aftertaste is dark chocolate with just the right amount of bitter and sweet.
Very glad this beer is easy to come by in my area, and I recommend it to any stout lovers out there.

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.
