A: Pours black as the can it comes in. Dark brown head forms only briefly. Looks quite viscous.
S: Smells mostly if dark fruit and booze. A little bit of dark malt.
T: Again, dark fruit and strong alcohol. Dark malt and only a hint of roasted malt make up the rest if the flavor.
M: As thick and chewy as it looks. Viscous and a little oily slick.
O: I feel like the first can from the pack I had was better, so maybe this can is off. Really disappointed with this sample though. Flavors kinda suck and there's way too much boozy alcohol, even for a big stout.

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.
