One of the best stouts on the market. The smell is extraordinary and the taste backs it up. If you like coffee and chocolate, you’ll like this beer

12oz bottle poured into snifter glass

----------

Look
Like a pour over coffee with a thick mocha head of foamy tight bubbles very slow to decrease; 100% opaque and dark, dark brown. Sticky and fizzy lacing on glass.

Smell
Nutty, coffee notes with a little booze/hint of alcohol.

Taste
Roasty, chocolatey, with a warm finish and esters; Slight sherry and raisin. Chewy.

Feel
Smooth, velvety, undercarbonated, with a thinned out body (bottle was 2 years old)

----------

Overall
It was very enjoyable and I would welcome another taste. I think a newer/fresher bottle would do better. This felt very flat and thin.
