This beer pours pitch black and completely opaque with a gigantic three inch brown head. The retention is very imnpressive.
The aroma is fine. Dark malt provides notes of chocolate and a sweet raw grain. There is a very floral note in there as well.
The taste is nice. There's definitely a big grain bill here and it provides notes of bitter chocolate, roasty grain, and a light burnt note.
The mouthfeel is full bodied with a high level of very fine bubbled carbonation.
Overall it's a solid beer. Although I've strayed from bigger stouts in recent years, I am finding myself enjoying this beer quite a bit. The appearance is almost ideal to me. The flavor profile is basically what you would come to expect in a beer of this type, but it is just becoming common place. I love that for almost 10% ABV it's not boozey. I also think there is some fantastic subtlety that is lost on many palates. Solid, but it wouldn't show up on my best of list.
