A- Pours black as night and almost gushes out of the can. Big, deep chocolate colored head that retains and laces very well. Big head may be from a rough pour but it still hangs around. Seriously the darkest head I've seen on a beer.
S- Huge sweet chocolate notes. Underlying hints of coffee and more bitter chocolate. Slight hints of vanilla sweetness. Roasted malts are prominent also. Smells like a delicious hot chocolate with a hint of coffee, except cold.
T- Just like the smell. Big sweet chocolate with hints of vanilla and coffee right up front. Not real complex, because it keeps this flavor throughout, but damn delicious. Sweet chocolate transitions into slightly more bitter chocolate, but still remains quite sweet. Ends with a slight metallic flavor that is the only drawback to this beer.
M- Thick and creamy. Much thicker than most stout of similar ABV and style. Low carbonation adds to the creamy texture. Despite being thick, it is easily drinkable.
Overall, this beer is delicious. I love sweet stouts, and this doesn't disappoint. Thick and creamy without being too filling. Flavor is simple, but pleasing and reminds me of a chocolate-coffee milkshake. Simply put, this is a great dessert beer.

16oz Can, pretty fresh. Served at around 55F.
Pours black with a two finger rich brown head, leaves beautiful drippy rings and sheets of lacing and holds a good cap. Purty.
Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts...that’s pretty much it, but that’s all there needs to be. Good to very good strength.
Flavor is more of the same, vanilla, rich creamy chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, fairly sweet, minimal bitterness, minimal alcohol. Very tasty.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, very creamy, gotta figure there’s some oatmeal at work here, soft to moderate carbonation. Smooth and easy drinking.
Man this stuff is good. A real nice rich dessert, but not too big, so it’s soooo easy to drink. Tons of body and flavor for a 5.3% ABV Stout. Nailed it!
