Poured this into a tulip, though I think it might have been better in a pint glass. Winter 10-11 release. **Updates are Winter 11-12 in a pint glass, makes a difference.
Appearance: I will say very few beers are black, as you can usually see some color in the light, but this is black. Small brownish head, no lacing. **Updated, there is some lacing, not too much though
Smell: Coffee, roasty malt, with a hint of sweetness. **Update, good sweetness to it
Taste: Roasty malt, hints of coffee and dark chocolate, little bit of bitterness. **Update, this has respectable sweetness with balancing bitterness, this has a nice mocha flavor
Mouthfeel: somewhat thick, crisp carbonation
Drinkability: Easy drinking, doesn't taste like 10% abv.
Overall very good, but not as good as I remember it being. Probably will let the others age some and see if that makes a difference. And, good stout for the price. **Update, the flavor is great, as good as I remember, I'm putting three bottles in the cellar to see what age does to it.

$ 2.49/12 oz bottle at Vintage Estates in Boardman, OH
Bottled winter 13-14 at cellar temp into snifter
Aroma of chocolate and alcohol
Head small (1.5 cm), medium brown, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring and broken layer
Lacing poor – occasional small island and atoll of small bubbles
Body dark brown/black, opaque
Flavor of bitter chocolate which ends with a whiff of alcohol; no malt, no hops, no diacetyl
Palate medium to full, creamy, carbonation soft
A very good chocolate stout which hides the 10% ABV well. This is one which definitely could sneak up on you. The rapidly disappearing head and scanty lacing detract from the appearance.
