I think this an underrated beer. It pours very dark brown, almost black, with a nice one-finger beige head that recedes fairly quickly. It smells and tastes like dark chocolate with coffee notes, with a decent hop presence in the background--sort of like a junior imperial stout. This is a solid beer.

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?
