Poured into a New Belgium goblet black with a one fingered tan head. Minimal lacing. Scents of chocolate and roasted malts. Not much of a hop presence in the taste, mostly smokey dark chocolate with nutty flavors on the back end of the palatte. There isn't a presence of alcohol, which makes this a good drinkable stout.

Poured from a bomber into my DFH snifter. Split with BAs infi, NYManc and johnjae.

Pours a dark brown that manages to actually stay brown as opposed to resolving into the typical inky blackness of most stouts. Smallish head that dissipates quickly, leaving some sticky, splotchy lacing. Smell is full of dark chocolate and some dark fruits. Just a slight bit of alcohol towards the end.

Taste is also full of dark chocolate with some roasted malts. The entire flavor profile is pretty roasted, come to think of it. Hoppiness is non-existent and all the bitterness comes from the chocolate and slight hints of coffee in the aftertaste. A very, very faint hint of alcohol towards the end. Mouthfeel is pretty slick, with a hefty body and a bit of chewiness. Goes down pretty smooth and finishes dry.

Drinkability is actually quite good. I'm suitably impressed by this stout. Didn't go into it expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. A respectable ABV and a pleasing flavor make this a great beer to share with friends.

Great drinkability for a hopped up stout, thanks to dnichols. Pours black with active character, above average mouthfeel. Hoppy without overbearing, and still balanced roast and chocolate that are lively and citrussy. King of hoppy stouts.Refreshing.

Purchased one of these fine bottles directly from the brewery in downtown Seattle while visiting family at UW. The restaurant staff is very welcoming and helpful. I recommend you drop in on them for a great experience.
===

Appearance: Very dark brown, silky caramel around the edges. With a careful pour, a delicate head is created.

Aroma: Of a fine espresso with a hint of dark chocolate

Taste: Taking a small sip, a subtle citrus flavoring, and a touch of bitterness.

Mouth feel: Nice foaminess with just the right amount of carbonation.

Drink-ability: Goes down smoothly when enjoyed in small sips.

Serving type: bottle

Overall: A nice solid stout for a chilly rainy night in Seattle.

Poured from 22oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours pitch black with a half finger of mocha colored foam that settles down quickly.

Smell: Roasted malt, roasted coffee, dark chocolate.

Taste: Dark chocolate, coffee and roasted malt.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied and creamy.

Drinkability: Overall a pretty decent deal (I think I paid $3.99 for this at Total Wine) for an decent beer. Nothing Earth-shattering, but really solid.

Pours a midnight black color with a full, chocolaty colored head. Head falls to a thin one leaving a nice layer of lace on the glass.

Aroma is of chocolate and burnt malts. Also smells a bit metallic.

Full chocolate malt taste quickly followed by a roasted coffee flavor and ending with a lingering bitterness part from the coffee and part from the hops.

Mouthfeel is full and very smooth, almost velvety. Not much of a bite and it coats your mouth.

Rather nice stout. Worth drinking.
