12oz Bottle from Party Source Syracuse NY for $4

Appearance - Dark brown colour with an above average size frothy light brown head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, coffee

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and light coffee. There is also a faint burnt/charred flavour, some dark fruits, and a nuttiness.

Overall - Tasty and very easy to drink. Kind of a hybrid between a regular and a imperial stout. Enough flavour to keep it interesting and a little something for everyone taste wise.

12 oz bottle. Pours black with tall, long lasting, creamy, beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, toast, cinnamon – apple pie, dark fruit, chocolate and alcohol. Body is full, creamy and smooth. Taste is of roasted malt, chocolate, brown sugar, plums, black current, chocolate, charcoal and herbal hops. Finish is long and dry. Complex, delicious RIS.
