Midnight black in color with a fine minimalist cap of beige colored foam. Complex,but inviting sweet aroma of figs,plums,and roasted malt. The mouthfeel is silky smooth,but there is definitely an alcoholic presence! The flavor is more on the sweet side with fig and plum notes and then a bit of bitterness from the roasted barley. I still cannot believe this came out of a can! Taste improves with warming. Much mor roasted barley comes to the forefront.

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.
