Poured from a bottle into a pint glass at about 45 degrees to start, sipping it as it warms.
Pours a dark brown, not quite black with a frothy uneven tan head. Lots of large bubbles creating a foamy head. Thin lacing that doesn't hang around.
Aroma is sweetness with chocolate and a hint of coffee. Can pick up the chocolate in the taste, and some roasted malt. Not as sweet as I expected, and some bitterness on the finish. It states 2 varieties of hops and 3 varieties of malts, but they seem muddled together without giving the beer any character. Still, it improves as the beer warms so better to let it sit a bit.
Body is a little thin and fizzy, would like the carbonation down a bit and the thickness up.
A good beer, but there are a lot of stouts out there that I prefer.
