From notes on 10/7/2013

Bottle poured with little head. Dark black color with maybe a little red or brown color too. Smells, roasty chocolate. Nice full flavor.

Appearance: looks great from the pour. Black and thick, with a brown, foamy head.
Smell: Not a strong smell. Notes of roasted coffee and malt present.
Taste: Coffee flavor is very present. Almost too strong. Pleasing taste overall; perhaps not one of my favorite stouts though.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into willy glass.

Nearly pure black with very little head despite a fairly aggressive pour.

Smells initially of iced coffee followed by roasted malt.

Taste is also of iced coffee followed by caramel, roast malt, brown sugar and a nicely balanced bitterness.

Fairly viscous and slightly sweet with very low carbonation. Acts more like a sipper, even though its not particularly high in alcohol.

Overall, I really liked this stout. Nicely balanced flavor and attenuation. Very enjoyable.
