Small bar-pour head, but it sticks around and leaves a near blanket of lace. Near black color where no lace penetrates (even on the edge of the glass).
Mildly burnt malt aromas; it's borderline toasty. Closer to Porter than Stout in the smell.
The flavor is more true to form--more burnt bitter malt. Like many stouts, this one is thin, perhaps thinner than most. Mild finish of over-roasted malt, but it lingers forever.
Serving type: on-tap

Sampling right now on 3/6/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F and poured into a brandy snifter.
Pours a really dark brown/almost black in color with close to a 1-finger beige head that settles down to around the sides on top. Some spotty lacing is seen with each sip but not a lot. The aroma is of roasted malts and coffee for the most part. the taste is pretty much the same with a hint of bitter-sweet chocolate in the mix as well. A real light bitter finish.
