Dark mahogany, cola-colored on the pour and opaque black in the glass. Creamy looking, light khaki head with tiny carbonation bubbles streaming up. On the nose, I get mostly roasted malts, creamy latte, a nutty sweetness, and earthy hops. Mouth feel is fairly thin, more like a porter. Unsweetened chocolate, roast bitterness, and earthy hops come through on the taste.

This is an exceptional Dry Stout. Slightly underrated...definitely deserves a 90+ rating.

I thought this was delicious. Big imperials seem to be everyone's favorite but this has all of the abv with more drinkability. Would buy again.

Thick stout feel, but a bit bitter and not very sweet.

Expressive nose of chocolate, malt, and vanilla. In the mouth - big and powerful - coffee dominates up front with chocolate and malt undertones. I really enjoy the creamy coffee and chocolate mouth-feel. Great balance between the full body and the alcohol - this works very well for me.

Poured into a snifter glass this stout is black and has a very slow forming sliver and then quickly dissipating beige head. Smell of chocolate, roasted malt, cherry, vanilla, and just a slight bit of caramel & coffee. Taste is creamy smooth with a big roasted malt flavor and a quite a bit of astringency. It tastes of chocolate and vanilla with only a bit of coffee. Big mouth feel with not much carbonation.
