12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours pitch black with a very dark tan one finger head. Great head retention and lacing.
The smell, apart from a slight metallic note, is awesome. Tons of toast and roasted malt with a good shot of coffee. There is some fruitiness going on too.
The flavor is a lot more bold than the aroma. Dark roast coffee and dark fruit along with some burnt caramel. Dark chocolate accompanies a high bitterness with a bit of cream to finish is off. Moderate mouthfeel with a fairly dry finish.
Overall, a really good, if not excellent, stout. While the aroma is lacking a bit it is full of flavor and stops short of being over the top remaining quite drinkable. Very nice.

Gainesville House of Beers - on-tap
A - black as night. Thin tan head. Looks beautiful, the way I like my home brewed stouts to look.
S - nice roasty/smokiness. Caramel malts evident. Some cocoa in there too.
T - starts out with this nice roasted maltiness. Has chocolate coming out next with some coffee as well. Not as impressive I guess as I had thought.
M - full body but not as oil thick as other stouts. Drinkable and not too heavy.
O - I like it, not even close to some of Bell's other stuff (can you compare anything to Black Note).
