Poured from a very cold bottle dated 7/10/12 into a Bell's snifter.
Poured black as night with no head to speak of. Nice oily brown lacing that slid back into the beer quickly.
Licorice smell was prominent with slight hint of some fruit like prune maybe.
Nice amount of bitterness surrounding licorice sweetness. Very tasty!
Mouthfeel was smooth but much thinner than expected from the color & oily appearance.
The taste impressed me enough to want to try another one poured a little more aggressively.

Served from a 12oz bottle into a Grey Sail pint.
Appearance- Pitch black with very small mocha head. Great looking stout.
Smell- Roasted malts, cocoa, very light sweet licorice. Thats about it.
Taste- A lot going on here. Bitter malty stout with a light toasted licorice flavor and sweet cocoa. Finishes licoricey.
Mouthfeel- Big, smooth stout with light carbonation. Because of the licorice, I'd like it to be thicker feeling though.
Overall- This is a unique stout that I'm glad I got to try.
