Pours a ruby black with good amount of tan head and good retention. Hard to go wrong on stout appearance. Aroma is roasty with chocolate. Taste follows with roasted malts and definite chocolate dominance. Nice and dry with excellent balance. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky. Surprisingly refreshing for a heavy beer. Overall great!

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours black with a light tan head.
Nose shows cocoa and roasted malt with a little sweet liquorice in the background.
More roasted malt as a flavours but not particularly complex. Again a hint of liquorice shows as well as some faint coffee but it's pretty subtle.
Could use more carbonation.
