Good 2 1/2 finger head from a steady pour, tan and firm. Retention is good, and lacing is wide and spotted. Brew pours a nut brown, settling into a dark opaque black in the glass.
Roasted barley, grape, and light cocoa aroma. Wheat and cream. Fairly mellow aroma.
Very balanced (imperial?) stout; really represents a lot of different flavors: big roasted barley notes up front (that linger through the entire range), chocolate malts, and a lot of cream on the finish.
Good balance, medium-full mouthfeel. Not a chewy stout; more silky. Some sting, some foaming. Surprising alcohol representation at only 7.5%. Very nice lasting, oily finish.
Very good double stout, not quite great, but it would make an excellent go-to stout for a daily drinker (pick this instead of Guinness). Very, very flavorful.
