This beer wasn't that great overall. A bit thin for the style and a pungent smell of alcohol. As it warmed, the alcohol mellowed and the malt flavors became more pronounced. However, you can do much better in this style category.

eyes...
dark, opaque with a sizable cocoa colored head, craggy head takes it's sweet time, the lacing is good... overall just a really nice looking stout.

nose...
kind of a prune-y chocolate, hints of cocoa, not much else going on but pretty good.

taste etc...
bitter chocolate with hints of coffee, the alcohol has a warming effect on the way down, there is a somewhat biting sensation in the aftertaste, this seems a bit too light in the loafers to be a stout and lacks a creaminess that would really tie it together. The ABV is well hidden.

verdict?
an OK stout, not worth looking high and low for but not bad to give it a shot...
