From a 500ml brown bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass. Best by date was 04-23-11.
The color of the stout is an opaque black, with a tan-colored head that was a full 4 fingers high before settling down to about 3 fingers. Head is nice and creamy; lacing is good.
Smells are of dark bread and dark, roasted malts. The aromas of sweet chocolate and caramels are strong, with a faint earthy hop presence as well.
The taste is a rich, slightly sweet, chocolate experience. You get the roasted malt flavors associated with a stout balanced well with the sweetness of dark chocolate. It also tastes of full, dark grains as in a loaf of bread.
Smooth drinking, full-bodied beer, with light to moderate carbonation. The aftertaste is bittersweet.
Overall an excellent beer that has never disappointed.
