When pouring it looks dark brown and turns black as it settles into the glass while producing a dark tan head. The smell hits you with its roast qualities, dark bitter chocolate, smoke, bbq, and a slight sweetness. As you sip the beer the dark roast shows its face first; then coco, and sweetness with a cherry note, slightly bitterness, and a pleasant creamy finish. The beer has a satisfying medium to full fluffy - pillowy soft body that leaves an oily residue in your mouth.

The more I drink this beer the more I like it, it must be the warming to the right temperature that is doing it (make sure you let it warm up to around 50). Awesome stout and surprisingly drinkable at 9.9% abv with no hint of alcohol. If you like stouts this is a must have, Cheers!
