Pours a black color with a touch of crimson around the edges. Soapy brown head. Not very energetic in the carbonation department. Luscious aromas of scorched butterscotch and chocolate and black patent malts. Caramelly malty flavor finishing thin and enjoyable to the tongue. Lingering malt sweetness. Very drinkable. Some sediment left in the bottle.

Bottle conditioned stout that pours with tan head that lasts. Black translucent color with reddish hues when held to light. The aroma is of roasted grains and slight chocolate. Metallic flavor in the first sips. Then roasted in the middle with a dry finish that is slightly sour. The metallic flavor is harsh and really detracts from the taste. The body is good, but the drinkability due to the off flavor is not so high.

A very fine stout that is quite smooth and easy to drink. The black body is held down by a half inch of tan foam; light lacing from the residual layer. The nose is very light but gives a sense of smokiness. The flavor is lightly chocolate with small hints of coffee. A smooth feel that may be a bit too thin for my taste. Quite drinkable due to the smoothness and light ABV.

Pretty nice little stout. Smoky nose and flavour, with a little roast and then some chocolate, quite subtle, with a crisp, slight fizzy mouthfeel, with perhaps a touch of acidity. The palate is a touch short, but theres some nice flavours in this, quite bitter-roasty aswell. Dry, lightly chalky finish.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4.5

Black body, ruby highlights only at the very bottom. Bubbly beige one-and-a-half finger head. Excellent lacing. A very roasty nose with a lot of coffee and a hint of chocolate. Similar attributes in the taste, roasty coffee, and some chocolate. Some light floral hoppiness also in the taste. And here's the rub: it's a lot thinner than your eyes and nose and its very name would make you think. But does make it go down very easy.

Overall, I'd like it a bit thicker, but it's a good stout.
