Purchased this beer from Lone Hill. Thanks Stan!
A - The beer pours completely opaque. Even when held up to the light, the beer remains a dark black. There is a one inch tan head with a slightly orange tinge to it that retains well. This beer is fun to look at.
S - The aroma is complex and rich. I'm getting tons of coffee, cocoa powder, cherries, and oats. The aroma really changers (for the better) as the beer roams.
T - Chocolate and coffee dominate this beer through and through. Furthermore, the chocolate notes really run the gamut, from bitter to sweet. As the beer warms, the potent alcohol undertone takes hold. Since this is a stout, I'm not particularly turned off by this. I think the beer really changes as it warms, so you get a different experience as the session transpires. Wonderful!
M - The beer is medium bodied, and is very creamy, even for a stout. My only complaint is that it does come across a bit boozy after it warms a lot.
D - If you are into stouts, you can easily enjoy this beer at any time of the year. It's obviously not one that's easy to come across (unless you're in SoCal) but this one still ranks near the top at drinkability. If you can get your hands on this beer, enjoy!
