12.7 oz bottle. pours pitch black, finger tan head fades quickly. Aroma is chocolate. Taste is mostly dark chocolate, nutty flavor. Some earthy bitterness in the finish. Finish is dry and mouthfeel is thin. Plenty of flavor in this nutty stout, good overall.

The flavor on this one is mostly walnuts with a moderate roast in the body and a strong, bitter finish on the palate.

Overall, pretty good without stretching into a higher caliber of goodness.

Pours dark brown, motor oil tone, tan head that fades to a ring. Smell doesn't really jump out at you but there's a general chocolate nuttiness with a roasty element almost like tree bark or chicory. Flavor is dry, cocoa, a bit ofa musty leather which I assume comes from the walnuts. Some blackstrap molasses flavors which, in turn, always makes me think a bit of prues. Body is a bit light.

Pours dark with a nice opaqueness. Has little carbonation. Not much of a nose with the beer. Has a chocolate up front taste with a sweet mid palate from the walnuts. Finishes with a light bitteress. A pretty good beer.

This beer had a good upfront, so my expectations were high. But after looking at a nice color, with a decent (but minimal nose), and the first moment of each sip the beer just falls apart. This can be described as hearty in the bad way but still an overall solid beer.
