Pours from the can a brownish black with a substantial brown head. The aroma is of chocolate, coffee and spice. The taste is pretty close to the nose, but there's quite a hoppy bitterness for a stout. A bit of booze too. Medium mouth that's slightly oily. Not bad, and the hop profile is distinctively Roughtail.

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a nice deep dark brown nearly black with a good thick almost three finger dark mocha head that faded to leave spotty side lacing and a dense one finger blanket.

S - Aromas of dark, roasted malts, light chocolate, light bready notes, faint caramel, light coffee bitterness. I get some hops, but, they're a bit older.

T - Taste is more of the nose, nice roasted black malt, coffee, darker chocolate, bitter roast and bitter chocolate, rather bitter spicy hop note too. Decent enough stout aspects here with light nougat notes and caramel, the chocolate here is rather prevalent and carries throughout the profile.

M - Mouthfeel isn't bad, slightly lighter/thin but does hide the alcohol well.

O - Overall, not a bad stout, but the hops might be a bit too aggressive here. Great chocolate notes though.
