Poured from a 22oz bottle into my Allagash tall snifter glass. Pours almost completely black with just the slightest amouth of light/color coming through while beeing poured, but then solid black in the glass. Toffee colored frothy head with excelent retention! Lacing is super thick and sticky and really fills out the glass.

Aroma consists of mostly chocolate, malts, and slight hops. Can also notice a coffee note...but mostly a semi-sweet aroma.

Pretty good stout! Medium body, smooth/velvety and rich mouthfeel. Lots of semi-sweet chocolate, roasted barley, toasted oats, and slight booze. The warmer it gets, the thicker it feels in the mouth. I've never seen, nor heard of this beer before...and it was just a random pick-up today. I have to say, I'm pretty pleased, and not let down at all.

A-Is a very, very dark cola brown with a short tan head and light bits of lacing,
S-Is a strong nose of coffee and some dark chocolate and a little smoke.
T-Is some smokiness, a bite of bitterness, then the roasted coffee and chocolate at the end.
M-Is sort of thin, much more than I would expect. This is the weakest part of this beer.
D-Is very nice. I expected a higher ABV but at 7% it's low enough to have plenty.

This is a solid beer, easy to drink and enjoyable at that. There are better but many more worse.

Hmmm...my scores turned into straight "4"s but I'm not gonna go back and change any of them. Does that make this an "80%" beer? I don't think so. This is the second time I've had this beer and I was definitely looking forward to having it again. At $5 per bomber, it's not necessarily a bargain but it's still cheap enough that it tempts me up to that "next level." I knew I was gonna love this and, dammit, it satisfies! That's way better than 80%!

This beer is one of those ultra black, oily stouts. The mouthfeel is probably the most extreme trait- this sorta rolls out on your tongue. The flavor itself is bold, malty, chocolatey. Very drinkable- not the strongest stout out there (read: you can easily drink one of these without feeling bombed) but by no means a pushover. This is a solid stout that deserves your attention and will reward you back! Grab this one when you see it and dig in!

Poured from bomber to pint glass the beer pours a deep dark brown, nearly black color. 1 finger head with good retention and lacing. The nose is roast dominated with tones of earhty floral hops and a hint of chocolate and licorice. The flavor is very much the same with an initial surge of roasted malt up front with an underlying mild bitterness. The licorice flavor is more pronounced than in the nose. I would prefer to tone it down a bit, but it's not bad. Chocolate really evens the beer out. Creamy and smooth, lingering roast flavor. Well carbonated. Overall, good. It would be better with by reeling back the licorice flavor, in my opinion. but still very enjoyable.
