Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/2 inch light brown head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of sheer surface foam. Very resilient specs of lacing cling to the glass and don't let go.

S- Semisweet aroma of dark roast brings to mind chocolate, coffee and a bit of char.

T- Roasty bitterness with a dark chocolate quality leads to some hop bitterness on the back end. Smooth and well-balanced between the sweet and bitter. After multiple sips, the hops really start to show.

M- Has the optimal viscosity of a straight-up stout with medium carbonation and a full body.

O- A very solid stout that I've been wanting to try for a while now. Drinkable, flavorful and with a bit of a hop kick. I'm on board.

A decent stout, but this is the junior varsity compared to Mephistopheles. If you want a 6-pack of a drinkable stout rather than going for the gusto, then this is a good choice. But as good as Avery is with their bigger beers, why not gear up for that instead?

Poured midnight black into the old snifter. 1 finger of ecru (the wife's word) head, with very small bubbles. She's a looker. This had some nice mild coffee and chocolate aromas, with a nice, faint tobacco note as well. The tobacco note transferred to the taste, and the slight sweetness, nice malty notes, and slight bitterness were good, but not the complete package. Mouthfeel was rather light for the style, but nothing worrisome. I must admit, this is a good stout. I am a bit partial to bigger stouts myself, and this may have clouded my judgment just a little bit. Solid, but maybe more of a tick than a keeper for me.
