big thanks to beerhan for hooking me up with a four pack of this awesome brew! poured this into a tulip and it looks amazing. three finger mocha colored head sits atop a pitch black body. the head slowly recedes to just a sea foam cap, but loads of sticky lacing decorate the sides of the glass. smells of smoke at first, then the chocolate bitterness comes thru with a roasted malt presence. the taste is opposite of how it smelled. with the chocolate up front and a slight smoke finish to it. mouthfeel is a little thinner than what i expected while i watched this get poured. still a good feel to it with great carbonation and a slight alochol burn on the finish. overall i would say this is one of the best non-barrel aged stouts out there. if great lakes makes a bad beer i haven't found it yet. seek it out!
