A - Arrived with about a finger's worth of brown head. It retained well, but not forever. Thin skimming of head remains and leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. The highlight? There was a candle on the bar and whenever I took a sip the candle projected ruby highlights through the blackness. Fantastic.
S - Nothing significant here. Mostly roasted malt.
T - I loved it. Not overly complex, but maybe that's why. Finally I get to enjoy a stout that doesn't have that burned coffee taste. Just a hint of sweetness, and dominated by roasted malt. The sweetness is something of a dark, bitter chocolate flavor. No alcohol flavor, but just enough heat for you to know that this has a punch behind it.
M - Fantastic! Full-bodied. Little bit of a carbonation feel, but impossible to see that. Mildly dry finish with a bit of a tingle on the tongue. Lingering flavors, but finally in a good way!
O - Best stout of any variety I've had to date. Can't recommend enough.

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.
