Thanks to markgugs for this one.
A: Pours dark brown with a thick foamy head. Good sustain with tons of lacing.
S: Aromas of rich chocolate and toffee.
T: Smooth earthy flavor of burnt oak with hints of bitter chocolate and coffee. Slightly astringent, but in a good way. Full-flavored, yet in some ways, subtle.
M: Smooth and medium-light bodied with light carbonation.
D: Overall, this is a damn nice stout. Get some.

Happy thanksgiving! Starting off right.
Obsidian is right. The name suits this beer. Head is a bit thin but on the darker side. Nice lacing.
Light aroma mainly of roast and coffee beans. Maybe a touch of alcohol.
Robust stout flavors. A bit of dark chocolate with lots of roasted malts.
Fits nicely with the milder porter and this stout as two excellent dark beers. I prefer the porter, but this a great beer in its own right.

Received in a generous trade from bennetj17. Thanks a million.
Poured a 12oz bottle into a Chimay Chalice. Poured a dark black with light mahogany tones around the edges when held up to the light. Had a thin mocha head that vanished quickly. Taste is roasted malts, dark chocolate, and creamy coffee. There is a slight astringent taste at the finish. Mouthfeel is more medium bodied then full with just a little carbonation. One of the better stouts on the market.
