Pours out a dark reddish-brown, sits very dark brown, almost completely opaque in the glass. Big, dark tan head on top that leaves some nice lace around the glass.
Smells strongly of roasted malts, and sweet cream and chocolate. Not too much on the nose, but nothing to complain about.
Tastes mainly of roasted malts, and lots of them. Some chocolatey hues and mild earthy/wooden flavors emerge, followed closely by a strong and deeply penetrating bitterness.
A strong, bold stout, with a smooth and creamy body. Great carbonation, and a big, full bodied presence. This is no weakling's beer. Good drinking, but I fear the bitterness may catch up with me; good for a stout session.
