Bottle in trade from thethrone. Thanks man!

Pours black with a nice creamy tan head. Smell is dark roasted malt, coffee, a touch of burnt ashiness, some dark chocolate and and some creaminess as well. Very nice. Taste is very much along the lines of the smell with some bitter dark chocolate, burnt malt and rich dark, dry coffee flavors abound. Just a slight twinge of faint fruitiness near the end, but bitterness takes it over and lingers subtly in the end.
Very flavorful for what it is, and a solid mouthfeel and drinkability. Very nice stout.

22oz bomber.

Pours completely black with only the faintest hint of light penetrating the edges. There's a small but thick mocha head that leaves only spotty lacing.

The aroma is nice with equal measures sweetness and roastiness. The sweetness comes from the dark chocolate mainly and the malts come across heavily roasted with some coffee hints. There are even some fresh green hops thrown in.

The taste is more of the same with the initial taste containing a kick of the green hops before the heavily roasted black malts take over. There is some cocoa sweetness on top with a finish that is a mixture of dry roasted malts and green hop bitterness.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied and extremely creamy with a dry, roasted finish.

This is a very good export stout and I like the hop presence thrown in for added complexity.

Pours a blackish body with large light brown head that dies slow and leaves lace. A malty mixture of black chocolate, caramel, bread, roasted and coffee along w/ hints of toffee and wood all are in the aroma. A real malty taste, much like aroma, as a thinner, smoother, creamier stout passes over tongue than expected but still packs a sweet taste. Chocolate, caramel, vanilla and possibly figs or molasses seem to pass my tongue as well as roasted, bread and wood notes so this is a balanced stout that has a sweetness and finishes dry. Just a well-crafted sipper w/ nothing extraordinary about it but a great sipper that I relaxed with.

22oz bottle into a DFH Signature glass pours a deep opaque black with a thin light tan head that diminishes to a thin layer and leaves decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts and dark chocolate with mild espresso. The taste is smooth roasted malts with hints of bitter cocoa and fresh ground coffee, an interesting contrast to the aroma. The beer is fairly light and crisp with decent carbonation. This is certainly an enjoyable stout, I'll have to pick up another bottle to try on a cold winter night.
