A - Deep brown, light tan one finger head and some head lacing
S - HUGE coffee, note, lots of acidity, dark chocolate, a huge roasted note, a weird but nice funk note, slight hop, foliage and some charred wood
T - charred wood, very acidic diner like huge coffee note, an earthy hop, soil, greens, a hint of sweet malts, very dark chocolate and an all around roastiness
M - Medium minus body, low balance, low complexity, medium plus acidity and a very long coffee and chocolate finish
D/O - Note the most drinkable beer. Very nice with a sweet desert and a roaring fire. This screams the Christmas season. Better than most of the holiday pack, but not amazing
Final thought - below %6 abv and nothing amazing, this one is kept for the Christmas season

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.
