Pours into a glass like dark coffee. Smell of coffee, whiskey like smoky hints, and some roasted malt(I guess chicory?). The tastes packs a bit more kick then I was expecting. Very acidic tasting, slightly dry finish, despite having a vaguely creamy feel while in the mouth. The taste is a bit like coffee, mixed with some raisin, and roasted and toasted grain. I like the taste, and most things about the beer, but I do feel it's a bit on the thin side... the carbonation also kind of makes it feel more biting then I was anticipating for a stout. All in all, I like this beer, but I don't think it's one I will be getting as a staple. Also, as far as seasonal winter beers go, there are a bunch of others I feel like are more satisfying in this capacity. This is worth trying if you haven't tried it yet though.
