Pours from a 12 oz. bottle into a standard pint.
A: Black. Pours about a half finger, foamy, brown head. Settles slowly, leaving a spotty blanket of foam on the surface. Solid beer ring lacing.
S: A little roasted espresso, more roasted malt. A little pungent hay, and slight molasses.
T: Malty with a good amount of pungency and a strong woody tone. Black licorice, grass, and charred malt. A little molasses and cola.
M: Hearty, but crisp. That char-roasted malt tone sticks to the palette throughout.
D: Sip and enjoy.
Atmosphere is good. Dark hue, nice foamy head, pretty heavy lacing. Nose is roasted malt and espresso with woody and sweet tones. Pungent roasted components make up the flavor base with some bitter and sweet notes. Well-balanced. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.

Sampled December 2013 from a bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: Very dark color with a nice tan head. The head lasted a long time, and left a thin coating on the inside of the glass.
Smell: There are roasted coffee aromas, along with some strong malt aromas. The combination made for an interesting aroma. Not much of a hop smell.
Taste: Full-bodied with an interesting mix of malt, and coffee. There is a little chocolate flavor as well. As with the aroma, there is not much of a hop flavor to balance the malt.
Mouth feel: Full-bodied, but very smooth. Very creamy.
Overall: Good stout. I enjoyed the bottle that I drank, but the coffee flavor can dominate.
