Pours very thick and dark. A thin dark brown head. I bought this beer while on vacation and saved it until I got home. This beer has a very rich taste. I taste chocolate and coffee right off the bat. The fact it is aged in an oak barrel and has a high alcohol content gives it that extra flavor you don't find in most stouts. I really enjoyed this beer.
