A - good dark color for a stout, a little disappointed by the lack of head, around a quarter inch.
S - good, strong smell with a hint of a possible coffee flavor.
T - the initial taste was good, but the immediate aftertaste was pure alcohol. I felt like I had just done a shot instead of drinking a beer
M - I swished a mouthful around to get different tastes, and it gave me a slightly numb feel due to the high alcohol content.
O - a very potent brew, high ABV with a strong alcohol taste. I was disappointed by this one, and I am a fan of stouts. I sampled it next to Guinness and Left Handed Milk Stout, and preferred both of those. I think if this beer were 2-3% lower ABV, it would compare much more favorably, because it did have a good initial flavor.
