Poured a black body with one finger head that died slow with lace patches. Aroma is standard but contains alot as I get roasted and coffee malts, some bready (or biscuit) malts, dark chocolate, hints of vanilla and woodiness but surprisingly not a real boozy aroma. Notice the same thing in the beer - the alcohol is well-hidden in this beer and never leaks out, not even as beer warms and smoothes. In fact, for a "double" stout, this beer is incredibly smooth and easy to drink and has a great balance that seems to actually tip from the dry/roasted/coffee malt notes to the sweeter, dark chocolate, vanilla, hints of toffee sweet tastes (not too complex as I don't get any "dark fruits" that sometimes slip in these beers). Since I like my stouts a little less dry/heavy with touches of more sweetness this beer hit the spot.
