Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass. Poured pitch black, with a 3 inch mocha head, that takes sometime to settle into a solid set of bubbles. Lots of lace. Smell is chocolate, coffee, molasses, and some piny hops. Taste is all of those things, but way way more chocolate and coffee then the smell would have you expect. Fairly large body, for it's easy drinkability. Nice amount carbonation and not very dry. This is a very good stout and the price is right.

Wow, these folks nailed it. .Mine was poured from a bottle into a sniffer.

The appearance was midnight black with a dark 2 finger head. Semi soapy / semi custard.

If you took a cup of coffee beans, covered it in molasses then added malts and a sprinkle of chocolate you could duplicate this smell. I also pick up subtle hints of vanilla bean and rum.

The taste reminds me of raisins, coffee and chocolate with a malty finish.

The mouth is medium with that is carbonated just right.

I will buy this again once my fridge gets low.

I'm thankful for this beer that I drink as I review this fine Thanksgiving morning. Pours black with the faintest brown highlights at the glass' edge. Big foamy, patchy head, receding slowly and leaving stripes of lacing. Smells nice, strong roasted malts, chocolate aromas, and a touch hoppiness and faint booze.

Very big flavor here. Roasted malts and chocolate intermingling to present a nice bitterness backed up by an earthy, leafy hop bitterness. The beer has got a touch of sweetness but is probably drier than it is sweet. Full and robust, with a light carbonation. Super stout.

Poured nearly black with two fingers of dark mocha head. Roasty aroma of coffee and dark cocoa.

Moderate carbonation and a somewhat light, slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Dark cocoa mixed with espresso up front with some mild molasses, caramel, and vanilla. More roasty coffee and a hint of smoke on the finish.

Light-bodied with only a hint of boozy warmth, this stout still packs a lot of punch. Very balanced and flavorful.
