The aroma is rich and appetizing with mesquite-like smokiness and intense molasses and bread crust. The body is black and opaque with a creamy, dark tan head. The flavor is also very smoky at first with rich roasted malt and bread crust-like malt flavor. There is also some apple-like fruitiness and a bit of alcohol. The smokiness quickly fades as the flavor becomes predominantly fruity and malty. It is very full bodied, smooth, and creamy with just a little carbonation and bite that keeps the texture from becoming overwhelmingly oily.

Very rich and intense with a savory aroma and a delicious, complex flavor. The texture as well is well balanced and satisfying.

Looks like dessert, but hopefully doesn't taste like an ashtray. I'm betting it doesn't.

A mountain of dark tan head crowns this black brew.

You can almost taste the milk chocolate, pervasive smoked wood and peat in the nose. Absolutely delicious...wait, I haven't even taken a sip yet. And don't let me forget the plum and and black cherry notes.

Taste is complex with bold notes of burnt wood, overripened dark fruits, some grain husk, milk chocolate, licorice and herbal hops.

Medium with a lighter body, comparatively speaking of course. The alcohol pricks at the very end, but only slightly.

What a uniquely flavorful way to kick off stout season.
