The smell made my mouth water and want a drink. The first drink was fantastic the flavor was deep and rich. It has a slight bite very slight. I Its a great beer. I have had better stouts like left hand brewing companies nitro but that being said this is still a fantastic beer.

Another brewery whose products don't normally come to my state. Acquired one bottle in a mixed six while travelling through western Pennsylvania in October.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams nonick.

a: Opaque black with the barest clear ruby hioghlight at the bottom when seen through light, topped by an inch and a half tan head which receded slowly to rocky surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Dark chocolate and cold coffee.

t: Same combo up front followed by a moderate balancing hop bite. Bitterness lingers at the sides of the tongue. Dry to bitter finish. Later the black coffee tends to become dominate and some ash taste builds in the back of the mouth, no doubt to match my own fat ash, which is building from drinking so many stouts without balancing them with enough exercise.

m: Medium, good body, carbonation tingle is light to moderate.

o: A great-looking stout which is a little lighter bodied than some but tasty.
