Pours black but slightly lighter heft appearance maybe than average. That 3/4" tan head sticks around for what feels like infinity. Aroma hits the usual suspect chocolate malt roast realm.

I like the non complicated taste, simple, roast, 2 row, heft, smooth oatmeal in the mouthfeel. You get a minor amount of coffee like impression from the roasting. Clean neutral ale yeast. Reliable and consistent it was.

Little thin after but a nice mouth feel. Bottled on 3/3/09. Still carbonated. Amazing smell. I have had imp stouts smell half as good as this. Decent beer. Little low on abv.
