A - Blacker than black. Thin dark head turns to splotches and a ring. Sparse lacing.
S - boozy chocolate, raisin, licorice, with a hint of hops. Quite pungent.
T - Lots of sweet malt up front, a bit of hop flavour in the middle. Looonnnngggg and smooth roasty finish, with some hop bitterness lingering in the background. A roller coaster ride from start to finish.
M - Thick and creamy, as it should be.
D - I was enjoying the taste of this bad boy so much, I forgot all about the massive alcohol punch. Very well hidden.
Not overly roasty for a big stout, it mostly shows up in the aftertaste. Instead, it's an amazing balance of sweetness, hops and roast, all of which can be easily picked out. This goes down as smooth as a baby's bottom.
