poured into a snifter this beer poured a pitch black color with a finger and a half worth of head. not much of a smell besides some faint dark chocolate and coffee. very faint though. the taste was the star here with plenty of coffee and bitter dark chocolate. at first you can taste some hops immediately followed by dark malts, coffee, bitter chocolate,and some type of dark fruit. Overall this was a very good stout for the price and is a good example of the style.
