12 oz bottle. Jet black, finger head fades fast, little lace. Mild roasty aroma with a touch of hops. Taste is roasty malt with bitter Cocoa, semi bitter dry finish. Thin to medium mouthfeel, goes down easy. Average stout with good roastiness, on the bitter side.

Pours dark and rich with tan head and nice lacing.
Smells like roasted toasted malts, with some coffee.
Taste is okay, plenty of char and roast. The hops are there too (dry pine); I prefer less of them in porters and stouts. Bitter. I wish it was sweet.
Feels medium to light-bodied.
This was just okay to me. If you like porters and beers that are bitter and roasty, you'll like it more than I did.

Creamy oatmeal, not quite slick body and feel. Sufficient carbonation. Lightly roasted malt, subtle, meaty (bacon-y) smokiness. Really well balanced and flavorful stout. Definitely a nice surprise!

Had this in a bottle poured into a pint glass. Very dark, almost black with a small tan head and good lacing. A good stout with a slightly bitter aftertaste that grows on you. Can really taste the roasted malt and hops.

I suggest letting this one warm a little before you start drinking it
