Pours cloudy, thick, and dark, with fantastic bubbly action and an enormous dark brown head. Brew is oily and completely black. Retention is good. Lacing is thick and impressive.
Smells like a chocolate banana smoothie. Once you get past that, I pick up some notes of dry wheat and a whiff of alcohol.
Very, very tasty stout. Not too sweet, although there is a dry-ish cocoa flavor. Thick barley flavor, and some burnt black coffee on the back-end.
Very nice thick and chewy mouthfeel; very little alcohol, and very little sting. Some bite is presented by the burnt coffee flavor, which is absolutely necessary for balance.
This is a very tasty beer that can fill the role of breakfast or dessert stout. The mouthfeel is truly fantastic.

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.
