Smells sweet. Looks dark like molasses going in the glass. I'm getting notes in the mouth that make me think of coffee and raisins for the most part, maybe a hint of roastiness and nuts. Kind of sweet and not overly harsh like some other stouts I've had lately...quite drinkable. Even my girlfriend that usually turns her nose up at beer likes it. A winner.

Would not drink a beer this heavy all the time, but my first sample was surprisingly pleasing.

Coffee. Coffee coffee coffee coffee. Super dark, fairly bitter, dark creamy head. Tastes good, but it's not what I'm interested in for a beer. But if I want a coffee I'll have a breakfast stout.

The beer shows a beautiful black clear color... hazelnut colored foam whom creates a low and fine hat not so persistent... aroma ash, cocoa, black dried fruit, coffee... same thing when you drink this very well balanced beer, clean, pleasant mouthfeel. Great

Stout pours opaque black with two inch that glides down glass. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Sweet malt balanced with roasted malt and coffee flavor, and maybe some hopes to balance. Smooth finish, Medium to heavy bodied and goes great with heavy dishes (had it with Roast beef). At 8.3% ABV, one won't make your brain numb which to me is a plus. A terrific strong stout!
