Pour produces a pitch black colored body with a large, "milk shake" frothyness of brown head. Aroma just bursts notes of roasted barley, sweet chocolate, and a noticeable earthy hop. Grains smell fresh and this fresh roast aspect makes for an attractive overall aroma makeup. Upon first sip, immediately noticeable is the mouthfeel. The body is so thick and creamy, it can be felt on the lips and on the palate. Flavor at center is very roasty, coffee notes given off from the roasted barley. There are some woody aspects in the center, but the finish rounds out with a hell of a lot of sweetness. Earthy hop counterbalance cuts through the thick malt sugars at the finish, leaving some grainyness that mixes well with the roasted malts. Finish leaves an impressive flavor of enhanced chocolate flavor while the thick stout disapates from the palate. Overall, this beer is a knockout, and ABV is well hidden making the beer quite drinkable (though very filling!).
