Bottle poured into my Lost Abbey stemware.

Pitch black, but a little thin-looking. One finger of oak-colored head fizzles away pretty quickly.

Heavily burnt beans are a little acrid, though smoother espresso comes out upon deeper inspection. Toasty wood, a little smoke, peanut skins, some dark chocolate, a touch of vanilla. Dark, roasty stuff.

Very green, woodsy flavor, for a stout. Tons of pine, bitter espresso, campfire smoke, a little toast, some chocolate mixed with vanilla bean. Behind the major pine and coffee flavors, a nice bit of sweet s'mores.

Much thicker mouthfeel than I expected from the appearance. Oily. Medium-full, mild but peppery carbonation. Some tang settles into the sides of the tongue while big bitterness sets up in the back.
