No need to get into details, this is by far one of the best looking, best smelling, tastiest, smoothest Stouts I've had. Wish I was back out in San Francisco were this would be a staple in my fridge. Unfortunately, it's not available in PA or at least in my area.

This is one awesome brew.

A- pitch black. Two finger mocha head, Seafoam lacing.

S- charcoal, roasted malt, hops, coffee, massive chocolate.

T- hops, heavy, roasted character.

M- medium bodied. One of the best all time stouts. A must try. Completely embodies what a stout should be.
