Poured into a fluted goblet.
It pours an extremely dense spent motor oil color with a thin, yet firm tan head.
No need to stick my nose in the glass (did anyway) to smell big burnt caramel malt and coffee smells. Smells of dark chocolate, vanilla and dark rum lasts throughout. Citrus, pine and whiff of astringent camphor roll in behind.
The flavors match the aromas, yet that dark rum taste dominates. Tastes of coffee, toffee, are tempered ever so slightly with a metallic tang and tobacco taste.
This is one very rich and velvety liquid. The body says, "Gulp!" The boozy smell and flavor says, "swig!"
Serving type: can

Poured from the 12oz. can into a snifter.
This amazing brew purs a deep, inky and oily black with about a one-finger head that fades into some lingering foam around the egde. Only a bit of spotty lacing.
The aroma is roasty malt -- the darkest of dark chocolate, roast coffee, rich black tea. There are also notes of dark dried fruit .
The taste is an assault on the tongue. Intense. Chocolate, a bit of sweet toffee and raising and then big, bitter dark chocolate. The lingering, drying bitter note on the tongue has hints of more chocolate and roast coffee and malty Assam tea.
The mouthfeel is creamy and sticky with a bit of carbonation as well.
Overall, just wow. This beer does not disappoint. One of the best stouts I've tasted.
