Pours a dark chocolate black with no light penetrating when held up to the light. Produced 2 fingers of creamy dark tan head. Pretty good retention, but eventually recedes to a nice thin film and leaves some laving.
The aroma that I am getting is bitter dark chocolate, licorice, rich coffee, roasted malt and some healthy notes of booze!
Taste follows the nose to the T. I feel like I am drinking liquid black chocolate. Its amazingly good. Along withe the dark chocolate, some subtle notes of coffee and licorice. I'm also getting what I think to be a black cherry finish.
Medium in body and hot!! I wish this was a little heavier, but this beer is hard to criticize. Thick, boozy coating with each sip. Makes you long for the next sip.
Overall, this might be the best bang for your buck stout you can get. $7.50 for a four pack and this stout is sublime. I will make it a point to buy a four pack every time that I go to buy beer until it is off shelves. So you can run and tell that homeboy

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into KBS snifter, bottled in 2013. Bottle stored in cellar then briefly refrigerated prior to opening. Pours a beautiful jet black and forms a two inch foamy head that's beige in color. The head ultimately settles into a thin ring around the glass.
The nose is French roast coffee and milk chocolate, quite inviting. There's also a strong roasted malt aroma, followed by a spicy presence that hints of nutmeg. The taste is quite similar to its nose, bitter mocha, sweet molasses and roasted malt, fudge and spicy (chile ancho and nutmeg).
The mouthfeel of this beer is quite pleasant, almost no carbonation present which in my opinion helps savour the beer even better.
Overall - very excited to discover this beer, its quite enjoyable and hides the 10% ABV extremely well. Its sweet yet no overwhelmingly so and all of its flavors are well balanced.
