Damn Sam. Had one of these last night at Mackenzie's with fellow BA's Stubob and Fantome. Deep dark color. Appears almost a dirty oil color in glass. Big brown head looking like oil sludge again. Big coffee and roasted malt nose. THis beer looks thick and follows through on that promise. Heavy lacing down the inside of the glass. Huge coffee taste followed by huge roasted malt taste. Stout is not one of my favorite styles. This is an extreme stout IMO however and deserves to be tried at least once. Has kind of a syrupy heavy mouthfeel. This beer is a little too much for me. Glad I tried it though. Not sure I will again.

Serving type: on-tap
