Deep black color with a thin caramel head with low retention.
Nice aroma of coffee and dark chocolates. Notes of roasted and some smoked malts.
Very assertive flavor of coffee, roasted malts and earthy hops. Aftertaste did not come out that dry as I was expecting.
Light to medium body with perfect carbonation.
Good stout, with great drinkability. Very fun to drink in winter and summertime.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of roasted malts, coffee, some smokiness. Taste is smooth, coffee, lots of roasted malts, very sessionable and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Jet black in color, when held to light some brown hues on the edges. Little to no, off khaki head, dies down immediately. No lacing. Looks rather bleak.

Sweet roast, bakers chocolate, cream, touch of caramel, and some shy fruit esters. No discernible hops.

Mild on the palate, with great nuances. Mild caramel and coffee roast up front lends way to a smooth chocolate and mineral character in the finish. Subtle, yet really smooth and meets the cut of complexity for the style.

Feel is good, carbonation is on point and finishes dry with a touch of creaminess.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

Excellent frothing, three fingers tall. A few shades away from black with ruby highlights. Soft roasty aroma, mild chocolate, chicory, caramel and woody hops in the nose as well. Very smooth, slightly slick, medium bodied. Kiss of roasted grain, mild charcoal, hint of coffee, light sweetness, balanced hoppiness, finishes with a lingering charred note and semi-dry.

Pretty good, I'd still order this over Guinness Draught as that beer has certainly not been up to par with me for a while.

A - Pours black brown, half a finger head, little to no lacing.
S - Dark baking chocolate, toasted grains, a little smokey.
T - Dry, a little tart, nice touch of smokey, and some roasted malt.
M - On the thin side and a little watery.
O - Not bad, a decent take on a dry stout.
