Poured into a glass mug. Pours dark brown with a large tan head that dissipates slowly. There are aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, and dark roasted malts. It smells sweet. It tastes like it smells. It's sweet with flavors of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and hops. The body is medium and this is a very smooth beer with enough carbonation. This is a solid and drinkable stout. If you like stouts, this is one I recommend.

Poured from 550ml bottle into Unibroue tulip.

Appearance: Pours a pitch black, with about two fingers worth of fluffy tan head that disipates rather quickly.

Smell: Dark chocolate, and coffee. Also getting a nice toffee and caramel smell going on here.

Taste: A bit of hop bitterness up front, but is quickly drowned out by the malt tastes of, coffee, chocolate, and caramel.

Mouthfeel:Thick and creamy, with a nice chewy texture going down.

Overall: Pretty decent stout, though I was expecting something a bit more after seeing the reviews on here. It was still a fairly solid stout though.
