12oz bottle purchased by my girlfriend at Wolverine Market in Port Huron, MI. Pours a dense black with ruby highlights, one finger of mocha froth, and speckles of lacing on the tulip. Smell is toasty roasted malts, licorice, faint chocolate note, baking sugar, black currants, and floral hops. Taste is dark chocolate, burnt grains, espresso, table cream, spicy and resiny hops, and some cocoa powder on the cough. Mouthfeel is rich, velvety, fuller than medium, silky middle, flash of spice gives way to a chalky, parched palate. Long, bone dry finish. Overall, this is a straight forward yet satisfying stout that nails the style. I could drink a few of these in an evening.
