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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

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.
