Look: Deep brown, nearly black, underdeveloped head upon pouring. Smell: Strong aromas accompany this one, roastiness and booziness among them. Taste: Generally roasty and sweet malty quality up front with alchohol towards the otherwise mellow finish. mild hops profile. Flavors blend nicely.

Chocolate nose. Taste chocolate, coffee, smoke, earth, malt and a hint of isopropyl alcohol. Dry finish.

It tastes like eating the dirt from my own grave. Instant coffee crystals.

Bottle poured into the Left Hand Stout Glass.

I was anticipating a lot from this stout. S/some roasted malts with some coffee notes very average. T/started off with roasted charred malts followed by coffee and a huge bitterness that just lingered. O/I was expecting a lot more from this stout. The coffee is nice and mild which is a welcome difference for me. It starts off great and just abruptly ends. It builds up without an exciting finish. The stout was kinda watery and thin feeling. The bitterness did subside as the stout warmed. Overall it was enjoyable but not memorable and I would not seek this out again.
