32 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Inky black. Stains the glass. Not much of a head.

Smell - Extremely roasty. Some hop character, I think. Coffee.

Taste - Super roasty. Bitter. Grassy. Coffee. Minimal sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium low carbonation. Very bitter.

Overall - Intense stout. Very bitter. Too much for my taste.
