Poured out with a creamy tan head which stuck around longer than most stouts and leveled to a thin covering. A little bit of lacing as well. Sticking the noise into a snifter revealed notes of dark chocolate, vanilla, booze, and sweet tobacco. Taste went well along with the smell. Chocolate and a touch of vanilla and coffee. Mouthfeel was just a bit lacking for a stout, but good carb balance. Overall a pretty good beer which I would try again.

The beer pours a viscous looking black with a thin tan head that provides some lacing and minimal residual oil. The nose is roasted toffee, bitter cocoa, slightly resinous hops, and a hint of ethanol. There is almost a cloying toffee sweetness in the taste, which is followed by abrasive bitterness (fades with time), lingering roast and background chocolate. It's medium-heavy bodied with average carbonation, big roasty sweetness, minimal overt chocolate, heavy bitter hops, and burning ethanol that dissipates over time. This beer is tasty and I can easily see how it could withstand/improve in the barrel, but reminds me too much of a more pricey choco yeti.
