Beautiful dark chocolate brown color that just doesn't want to let the light through. Ok head and lacing. Aroma is malty with roasted coffee flavors coming through. Taste is awesome, very clean and a crisp finish. Hints of coffee and chocolate blend and balance well together. Easily drinkable beer with a nice flavor and a very clean and crisp finish. gotta have some more ofthese!!!!

A- nice dark stoutty color that looks like a nice stout color, rather subtle lacing, really gotta look hard to see it, kinda like my friend rick who was pretty damn good at hide and seek back in the day.
S- smells like a stout might smell, lots roasty barley just tickles the innards of my nose, quite arousing i might say
T- well, tastes kinda like what a stout would taste like, nice subtle hints of coffee and full flavor of roasted barley and malts, not as strong as i would like
M- feels a little lighter than i would prefer, but still has the somewhat heavy feel of a stout, just a little stout, lol
O- very nice beer, hold true to the stout, just not as developed and strong as i might like, i like my stout like arnold and this is kinda like Rich Froning, still got muscles and knows how to use them, but arnold is still bigger and sexier

A-Dark. shines with red tint held to light. quarter inch of tan head.
S-I got a roasted or slight char.I mabey some pine notes.
T-Like a non-watery guinness .
M-Slight carbonation nothing that is upsetting. Super refreshing end.
O-It's a great beer.Nothing to call home about but it is well executed. After I try a few more I will form my final opinion.
