From a 12 ounce bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass.

Pours night black, with two fingers of nice tan/off-brown head that lasts quite a while. Initial aroma is of strong black coffee, roasty and warm, with some chocolate malt in the back. Mouthfeel is adequate, coating but not thick. Tastes like a cold glass of coffee, backed by chocolate (from the malt, I assume). Low levels of a nondescript hop bitterness, with some coffee bite shoring it up. The overall picture is kind of weak. It meets its requirements, but there's something missing... All things considered, it's average, and I'll drink the second in the mix pack if the wife doesn't... She'll have plenty of time to get around to it, though, since I'm not in a rush to refill the glass...

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.
