A - Black with a fairly large, smooth, creamy, fluffy, cafe colored head. Good retention leaving a nice, sticky layer of lace.
S - Loads of sweet, creamy chocolate. Hints of grapefruit and sweet citrus. Notes of mocha. THe more I smell, the more ruby grapefruit aroma I get. A slight earthiness on the end.
T - SImilar flavors to the aromas. Sweet, creamy chocolate is front and center. A constant background of ruby grapefruit that bursts out mid sip. Subtle underlying earthiness and stale coffee grounds throughout. Finishes with a stronger mocha flavor along with a slight earthy and citrus rind bitterness.
M - Medium body with above average carbonation. Lively with a slightly spritzy finish.
D - Very drinkable stout. Alcohol is very well hidden. Great balance between sweet and bitter, dark stout flavors and hoppy goodness. I easily finished my bottle and enjoyed every last sip.
Notes: A very well done hoppy stout. Great job balancing the flavors. Hops are very present, particularly the grapefruit, but it is undeniably a stout as the sweet and earthy chocolate flavors are up front. Overall well done. Really nice beer that is worth a try.
