A - Jet-black color with an off-white, one-finger head of foam.

S - It smelled of java. Nice coffee and chocolate aromas.

T - Good coffee and chocolate flavors with a touch of toffee. Roasty with a touch of bitterness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - Another good brew from 2nd Shift. Please, keep sending them our way!

on tap at Baileys range, served in tulip

pour is dead black with a cocoa creamy and frothy head.

loads of roasted malt with a hint of chocolate and sugar

heavy on the roasted malt all around. bits of charcoal blended with a subtle sweetness. some dark chocolate mixed within.

light and easy, mild carbonation, a bit dry

easy drinking, enjoyable, no hint of this being 7.10% abv, i would have though closer to 5.5.

Pours a black color. One inch head of a brown color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of wood, hops, slight cherry, sweet malt, roasted malt, and a hint of liquor. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial Stout. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a strong roasted malt bitterness. Tastes of roasted malt, sweet malt, biscuit, hops, wood, hint of liquor, and slight alcohol. Overall, wow a rich and well blended beer. It tastes more like an amazing Porter, than an American Double / Imperial Stout.

750ml bottle.

Pours pitch black with a very dark tan head, extremely thick, that leaves lots of lacing and a thick rocky cap.

Aroma is roasty with tons of dark malts and hints of coffee and cocoa powder. There is also an earthy, maybe hoppy, presence in the nose. There is also some vanilla.

The taste is also very roasty, plenty of cocoa and a hint of smoke. Sweet vanilla and roasted coffee notes in the background. Finish is bitter and highly roasty.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with strong carbonation and, again, very roasty.

This is a nice, easy drinking stout that sticks to the roasty character throughout. The sweetness is mild but present. Very good.
