Notes: Born on 11/21/13 (current date 6/15/14).
A: Dark brown/black with a nice 1 finger "stout" head (where the individual bubbles are barely distinguishable).
S: Mostly coffee and some toffee. A slight metallic scent too.
T: Hearty roasted malts. The roasted flavor is really present early. The late gives way to a bit of bitter coffee flavor.
M: Nice mouth feel - not quite coating but pretty rich and thick. Slight carbonation.
O: The word "licorice" in the description scared me (I hate licorice). But there are no discernible "licorice" flavors in the beer. I mark that as a big plus. Very nice roast flavor with a modest 6.0% ABV. There are not a lot of complexities of chocolate and coffee - but this is still a well made and good tasting stout.
