12oz bottle poured into a Libby globe porter/stout glass. No date on the bottle.
Appearance: Dark brown to black - dark cola brown at the edges. Thin tan head died back fairly quickly and left a ring at the edge. some strands and sheets of persistent lacing.
Smell: Roasted malt, hint of coffee, cocoa powder, hint of citrus on the swirl, and something else. Raisins? Interesting and enticing.
Taste: Roasted malt, milky sweet chocolate balanced with black coffee notes and a bitter finish which is roasted/charred malt plus a hint of pine.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, nice thickness, some creaminess under the carbonation.
Overall / Drinkability: Very tasty. Nicely balanced between sweet and bitter. Went well with butterscotch cookies. I could easily have another.

A- pours black with a 2 finger dark tan head. Small blotches of lacing polka-dot the glass.
S- chocolate and a lot of pine.
T- roasted malts and bitter, dark chocolate. Nice amount of pine hops that give it some bitterness.
M- medium body and carbonation. Has a slightly dry finish.
O- nice milk stout with good amount of hoppiness, which I like.

12 oz. bottle. Pours coffee black with an airy tan head of about 3-fingers that fades slowly to a thin cap. Not much lacing. Aroma is mocha, fruity and a little earthy.
Taste starts out with lactose sweetness and roasty grains, followed by a rich mocha toffee character. Finishes with a clean bitterness that is complimented by baking chocolate and a slight earthiness. Alcohol is well hidden. The sweetness becomes a little too prevalent as the stout begins to warm up, and the mouthfeel is a bit watery considering it's strength. Medium-low carbonation.
This beer is full of delicious and distinctive flavors considering there are no actual flavorings added, but I'm left wishing it had a more substantial mouthfeel.
