A - Body is midnight black with no highlights. 1 finger of dark tan foam on top with decent retention. Good lacing on the glass.
S - Milk chocolate. Light roast coffee. Rye bread. Just a slight hint of grassy or herbal aroma, possibly from the hops.
T - Tons of smooth dark chocolate, a dash of sharp burn grain, a mild tang through the middle that hearkens back to classic irish stouts. Some caramel and booze evident in the finish. Aftertaste is roasty, and with pleasing bitterness from the roasted grain/hops.
M - Medium body with subdued carbonation--a good thing for this beer IMO. Finish is silky with only a touch of acidic/astringent bite. Booze is noticeable in the finish, but just as a subtle warmth.

A: Nice rich black color. Presents with a 1 finger tan head. The head has real staying power and isn't receding at all. This is a great presentation and appearance.
S: Coffee and espresso. Some mild bitter chocolate. A hint of caramel as it warms.
T: Coffee at the front moving into a more bitter midpalate. The finish is coffee again. After this one warms the booziness takes over masking some of the more pleasant tastes.
M: Right level of carbonation. Not as smooth as a TenFidy - but certainly nice for a drinkable stout. Slightly dry finish diminishes it slightly.
O: This is right on the border of too bitter for me. It might stack up as I continue along - but it is not overwhelming at first. This is a very coffee forward stout. I enjoy the strong coffee tones and the head that stays for the entire time.
