Huge dark brown head from an active pour. Brew is a solid, beautiful black. Retention is very impressive. Thick lacing. A truly beautiful stout.

Cocoa notes waft out from several feet away as the beer starts to settle. Up close, roasted barley and dark fruit are more apparent, along with dark bread and bananas.

Flavor is at first subtle: a standard stout, with roasted barley and just a hint of dark fruit. Then the flavors start to roll in: tons of very, very roasted barley; a bit of black coffee; very dark cacao (but this is not a chocolate stout); a ton of bitterness and burnt toast, especially on the back end; slightly sweet hints of cream and bananas.

Creamy and smooth mouthfeel. Sticky, almost chewy retention. Medium-full feel, not among the thickest for a stout, but very smooth. A little alcohol heat in the chest, but none in the mouth.

This is a big, strong, bitter, but pretty traditional stout. It would be a great option for a daily drinker kind of stout - think a much bigger, bolder, and better Guinness. It's not super sweet, so it's not much of a dessert stout.

160z can, poured into a snifter

A- pours a jet black color with with a one-finger creamy dark tan colored head that retains to eventually settle to a film on tap and a ring around the edges

S- smoky roasted malt with aromas of charred wood, day old coffee, bakers chocolate, cocoa, caramel & soap suds

T- Smoky malt up front gives lots of campfire/charcoal flavor. A hint of caramel mixes with coffee & chocolate on the mid-palate, the finish is chocolaty with a linger of smoke

M- heavy and viscous body with low carbonation leads to a super creamy and chewy mouthfeel that continues into the finish, while remaining quite drinkable

O- This one definitely is a meal in a glass. Huge creamy mouthfeel with nice smoky/chocolaty roasted notes, well done
