This beer pours an inky black color, with a thin brown head that fades slowly, leaving a pretty thick lace.
This beer smells of mild roasted coffee beans. Some bitter chocolate aroma is present as well. Some toffee and a slight caramel aroma is also slightly noticable.
This beer tastes much like it smells. Mostly coffee, but mildly. Some chocolate. Almost like chocolate covered espresso beans.
This beer is smooth. It leaves a toffee like and coffee aftertaste. It is a little higher in carbonation than I would expect.
This beer would probably make a good session beer. It isnt too high in alcohol, and the flavor is great.
Overall: This beer is the entire reason I choce to buy the Holiday pack. I hope they telease it sometime in a six pack. This beer is great. One of the best I have ever had from BBC.

A: Pours a dark, black with a short lived dark tan head.
S: Very malty aroma with no hop aroma. Lots of dark fruit, raisin. good amount of chocolate and coffee. Some alcohol notes in the aroma.
T: Big burst of coffee and cream with a chocolate hit soon after with a bit of raisin. Black coffee makes up the bulk of the aftertaste with a mild black olive note . No hop flavor to speak of. The alcohol is hidden well and it has a slight acidic bite. Finishes dry.
M: Medium full body almost chewy with low carbonation.
O: This is a decent stout. Big coffee flavor but for me a little too big, It lacks something, perhaps a complexity that other stouts have. It's definitely a beer that I would have no problem sitting back with on a cold winter night.
