A: This poured a nearly opaque cola color with rocky light tan head.
S: It smelled like roasted coffee and cream and sweet milk chocolate, with some caramel malt.
T: It tasted like bitter black coffee and sweet milk chocolate, with a bit of copper. It had a bittersweet aftertaste, with prominent alcohol warming.
M: It was fairly thick with moderate carbonation. Nice full body.
D: This was a decent double stout, with a great scent and body. But the taste wasn't anything special, and the finish was really rough, so it wasn't very easy to drink. Maybe age would help improve, but this brew was only mediocre fresh.

Reviewed 4/18/13, 12 oz can in a snifter.

A - Pours dark brown nearly black with a two finger tan head.

S - Roasted malt very strong upfront. Coffee, licorice, dark chocolate, red wine.

T - Roasted malts, hops, finishes with medium to high bitterness. Hints of coffee, and alcohol and a bit of astringency. Bitterness lingers on the palate.

M - Heavy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. A sipper for sure.

O - Not particularly feeling this one, decent but alcohol and bitterness overpower. Maybe better with some age on it.
