12oz bottle, 2/14/07. Pours an nearly opaque molasses, with just a little caramel light spot at the very bottom when held to light. The tan three-finger head is think and creamy, eventually receding into a rocky topography of frothy craters. Plenty strands of puffy lace cling to my Guiness pint.
The aroma is dry, toasty malts and slighty nutty, with a faint woodiness. The flavor offers more of the same, with some carob, milk chocolate, and a slightly spiced, almost nutmeggy, finish.
It's light-bodied for a stout, with good carbonation. The brew starts off like dry, dark chocolate, then moves into a creamy, still chocolatey middle, then finish on a dry-hopped, woody, slightly nutty finale. Very drinkable, pretty complex stout. Solid overall.

A-The pours was definitely fun. Just throwing it out of the glass. It cascades and everything. Nice creamy, nitrogen infused head. Dark body, not much light penetration.
S-Aroma is roasty first and foremost. Milk chocolate. Coffee with cream. A pleasant, textbook stout aroma.
T-The flavor is roasty again but I also get a somewhat noticeable grassy hoppiness in the back end. In between is coffee and milk chocolate or even mocha. A little chalky. Light, dark fruitiness.
M-The body is creamy but the carbonation isn't up to par. It's nearly flat and it really doesn't retain it's carbonation well.
O/D-Bought a single. Glad I didn't go for a full sixer. It was a cool beer to pour, and the flavors were pretty on point however, the carbonation was very flat. Still happy I tried this.
