Had this on tap at Russell House. No doubt this is a stout, so intensely dark and a small head to it. Nice crisp drink - not overly malty. This is a bit of a chocolate bomb on the tongue - a bit intense but a nice note of coffee combination. Liked this a lot - 9% a bit much for a lunch beer, but I will make sure to not do anything important today

Deep, dark brown color. Plenty of ring and spotty lace, but the head is relatively small. No light shines through the edge of the glass.

Plenty of mocha, Baker's chocolate and black coffee to the nose. There's a good dose of cream to the smell as well.

This stout leans to the coffee notes. I detect some chocolate malt but it is well behind the black patent malt. The swallow is dry with a bit of alcohol warmth. The taste reminds me of the intensity of deeply roasted coffee beans. Short aftertaste, surprisingly. The mouthfeel is pretty typical of the style.
