3.29/5 rDev -10.4%
A friend gave me this to try. .. glad I didn't pay for it. The appearance is near black but with a grotesquely over foamy head. The nose is a little funky and no where near as rich as this style should be. The mouthfeel is decent but thin. The flavor is light and dissapointing with no real notes to speak of. I really hope that I just got a bad bottle but this was very dissapointing. Definitely would not try again.

On tap in a pint glass.
Opaque, black with medium tan head that dissipates quickly to leave a thin rim and prominent lacing.
Carmel malt, dark chocolate aroma. Taste is similar with moderate bitterness that lingers. No detectable ethanol.
Medium body with quite a lot of carbonation and slight warming.
Overall a tasty drinkable stout. The bitterness is a bit high for a stout with not enough sweetness to be fully balanced. Also seems a little more carbonated than some stouts.

22 ounce bottle -> Dogfish Head glass
A - pours up deep black with a dark tan one inch foamy head. Retention and lacing are both good.
S - nose is sort of weak. I mostly get some roasted and grassy notes.
T - Caramel malts dominate up front with toffee, and molasses notes. It finishes clean with coffee, chicory, black licorice, and roasted nut flavors.
M - fairly thick and chewy with good carbonation
O - a decent average stout. I'd drink this again in a heartbeat.
