Poured from 341 mL bottle. Incredible aroma of chocolate and coffee. Pours black with brown head. Definitely bitter in taste. Full bodied, slick texture, average carbonation, with a bitter dry finish. Overall a great bitter stout.

Poured from 11.5 oz bottle into a Sam Smith pint glass. Moderate hand. Production date 131313. Hmmm, that seems unlucky.

A: 4.5 Opaque, rich black body with 2+ fingers of mocha-colored head. Good retention. Impressive, intricate lacing.

S: 4.25 Tangy, toasted malt. Chocolate and lesser coffee notes. A certain "coffee and cream" scent happening here. Pleasantly nutty. Almonds. Toffee. Black bread. Light smoke. Black licorice.

T: 4.0 Nutty, tangy malt initially. A dark chocolate-y, hop bitterness develops to close things out rather dryly. Lingering tang and almond bitterness on the aftertaste. Minimal alcohol presence.

M: 4.0 Moderate carbonation with a moderate body for the style. Could be a bit richer on the palate, but nice and smooth.

O: 4.25 Nice, rather drinkable, stout with some great roasted malt notes. I'm good for a few of these, for sure.

Prost!

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.
