We are cracking this in honor of Dark Lord Day 2013, as we are sadly not of the lucky bunch in attendance, and this is the most appropriate replacement beverage we have on hand. It pours as black as you would expect, with a beautifully creamy two finger head of loose latte colored bubbles sitting atop the liquid as if over a root beer float. Retention is nice, with thick, ringed lacing left around the glass. No haze or sediment is noted, and carbonation appears to be active. The aroma is surprisingly hoppy, boasting grassy, herbal, and bittered citric components, along with tinny metallics, big lactic creaminess, char roasted coffee malts, vanilla extract, sugary sweet bubblegum esters, graham crackers, cinnamon spiciness, booze, and an interesting fusel spearmint with warmth. Our first impression is that the flavoring is on the light side, but well blended, with excellent contribution and softness from the body. As we sip, rich dark chocolate malts, Band-Aid phenols, grassy and brightly grapefruity hops, charred coffee malts, lighter pale malts, bubblegum esters, and white sugar sweetness mix for a complex front. The middle peaks with milk chocolate smoothness and sweetness, chalky yeast, spicy booze, and the juiciest hops of the sip. Big booziness washes through the finish, with complements from dark cherry fruitiness, continued milky chocolates, those curious pale malt inclusions, citrus, and general roastiness of the deep malt bill. The aftertaste breathes of chalky pales, roasted and burnt coffee malt dryness, dried toffee sweetness, coiny yeast, semisweet cocoa powder, and distant echoes from those earthy and citric rind hops. The body is on the lighter end of medium, and the carbonation is medium. Each sip gives fantastic slurp, froth, and cream, with nice finishing pop and smack. There is prickle and sting from the booze as it burns off the palate and tongue into the air. The mouth is otherwise a bit puckered, and coated with an astringent, cheesy film, affording light dryness. The abv is appropriate, and the beer drinks easily for how big it is.

Overall, what we liked best about this beer was its beautiful look to start, with excellent taste and slurpability to follow. The head on this is so very creamy, allowing for the softest slurp and foaminess to cap each sip. The nose gives nice and surprising hoppiness for the style, keeping things fresh, and making it easily approachable as a whole. Some of that robustness of hops is lost through the flavoring, but this actually helps things balance out, rather than letting the scales be tipped. This is a great beer that stylistically sips more like a black IPA, and will have you coming back for more.

Spent one year in the cellar bough fresh from the brewery

Pours pitch black in color and pretty viscous. A big finger and a half foamy light tan head retains nicely.

Smell is good. Lots of roasted barley maybe some rye are forward in the nose and fade to a toffee aroma. an earthy hop aroma finishes.

Taste follows the nose with big roasted barley and rye flavors upfront. Malt is decently balanced with a mild bite, hints of tobacco and saddle leather, moderate earthy hop flavor and mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel is moderately thick with a little bit of stickiness and some oily hoppy resin.

Had I realized how hoppy this was I would have drank it fresh. Not a great stout but I'll give it the benifit of the doubt considering it's age.
