Poured pitch black with a thick, bubbly brownish head. The color was great - the head disappeared to leave just traces fairly rapidly.
The smell was of chocolaty oats with hints of fruity hops. The aroma was fairly strong - but pleasant - earthy tones.
The taste was of sweet chocolate blended with some bitter, fruity hops and a touch of yeast. As the drink progressed, more flavors became more manifest. After a few sips, I read the bottle more closely and saw that there were nine ingredients. I was not surprised, as it is a richly complex stout. The taste was very enjoyable.
It left a nice taste in the mouth - one that I would expect from a good stout. The alcohol was well-hidden. It was rich and creamy.
The impression it left me with was haven eaten a bowl of oatmeal accompanied with a rich chocolate milk.
This is a great, complex stout to have as a dessert drink.

Pours very dark brown/black, I can get no light thru this one. Great thick billowing fluffy brown head that sticks all over the glass like a curtain of lace and a nice thin head stays for a long while.
The aroma is actually almost like Trois Pistoles, in that spicy/mysterious/dark fruit kinda way, but with chocolate and roasted malts.
The taste is a roasted bitterness, perhaps espresso bitterness with hints of chocolate and caramel sweetness.
Nice creamy, pretty thick mouthfeel that coats the mouth well and slides down the back of my throat.
Great drinkability and at only 6.0% I could have plenty of these in a night....well done.
