A: Pours pitch black with only a thin layer of dark khaki colored head. The foam doesn't take long to settles, and leaves a small bubbly ring along the edges of the glass. Minimal lacing as it drinks.
S: The nose is dark chocolate, raisins, malt, a touch of caramel, and a touch of vanilla. It's sweet, and I already know that I might not like this beer. I prefer my stouts with more of a roast and smoke character.
T: It starts off sweet with malt and mild raisin, but there is a seriously bitterness to this beer that I wasn't expecting. As it moves to the middle I get a good helping of bitter cocoa powder and more malt. The finish remains bitter.
M: Full bodied beer. It's sweet to start, a bit cloying and syrupy, but the the bitterness of the beer is was lingers on the palate. It coats and lingers for a while after the beer is gone.
O: I was not expecting this to be so darn bitter. Especially for a stout. I was expecting sweet stickiness and boozy raisins. Boy was I wrong. It's still not my favorite stout, but it's better than I would have imagined it to be. I still don't think I'll be buying any of this in the near future.
