22oz into a snifter. Pours a brownish black w/ a 1-finger mocha head that settles to a thin collar and film.

Aroma is chocolatey, roasty, bitter, and clean.

Taste follows nose. Good blend of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee

Mouthfeel is perfectly smooth with a clean dry finish.

Overall a simple, straightforward, well-built stout.

Apperance: Pours out pitch black with about 1" of thick dark khaki head. Lacing and retention is very good. Pretty good looking beer.

Smell: Smells very roasty. A hint of bitter dark chocolate as well. That's about it.

Taste: Very roasty up front. A bit of coffee comes through as well, and a little dark chocolate. Not much for hops.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Medium to full bodied with very fine carbonation. Very creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a very roasty stout that doesn't have any other defining flavors. Very good mouthfeel though. Worth a try if you have the chance.

Scored this via Let's Pour. Inky black with a densely packed and well-retaining dark tan head. Chocolate, molasses, and coffee all intrigue the nose. Big roasty malt complexity also includes some smoke and burnt toast. Black licorice, smoky, dark toast, and espresso all making their presence known all the palette. Bitterness is medium-high. Hop flavors seem secondary here though perhaps a bit earthy. Medium-full in body, slight creaminess is notable and pleasant. Carbonation seems appropriate for the style and is moderate/moderate-low. Overall this is a rich, roasty beer with deeply hued dark malt bill atop a luxurious lush silky body. Well done.

This poured out as a thick black color with a thin tan head on top. The retention is thin, but the lacing is sticky. The smell of the beer is slightly hoppy, roasted and malty. The taste of the beer has a pretty strong bitterness, lots of dry chocolatey roasted malt. The mouthfeel is thick, nicely carbonated with a dry finish. Overall this is a pretty good brew.
