550 ml bottle, no bottled-on date, poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a dark brown with reddish hues, topped with a thick inch of creamy, cake-like tan head, which has excellent retention and leaves lots of lacing.

S- Mild aroma of chocolate, coffee and roasted grain, a bit of fruity sweetness.

T- Sweet milk chocolate, oats, mild coffee flavors, along with roasted grain and mild fruitiness. It's a nice balance of sweet chocolate and fruit flavors along with roast and hop bitterness. Also has a milky, creamy flavor to it.

M- Medium-bodied, has a wonderfully smooth, silky and creamy feel.

O- A great beer, it's very flavorful but also balanced and drinkable enough that I would recommend this very highly to someone who had never had a stout before, it's worth buying and then buying again.
