Pours a very dark syrupy brown with a thin tan head on top. Aroma is nutty and grainy with hints of caramel and sweet bread. Flavor is roasty and nutty, sweet with a big of a toasted flavor. Feel is smooth, slightly syrupy, medium carbonation, sticky lingering flavor. Nice complex stout with some interesting flavors.

Pitch black with a thin tan head. Smell overly sweet but taste is far more balanced. Starts sweet finishes bitter and dry. Taste is nutty and chocolate. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Some heat from the alcohol. Very good. A favorite.

Pitch black, light tan head and great lacing. Rich roasted aroma. Notes of toffee, richly roasted grain, light coffee, cocoa powder, roasted nuts and molasses. Full, thick, creamy, and no hint of abv. Amazing stout and amazing big bold flavor.

2015 vintage. Belgian candied sugar black walnut goodness? Interesting.

This is a wonderful beer, but one that didn't quite meet my expectations -- then again, I had them too high, let's be real. Not really sweet, which I liked, but there was a nice dark fruit and candied kind of flavor in there that plays off the walnuts (which I didn't really taste initially) nicely. The walnut flavor is not very strong, but it's there. The feel is oily and slick, which works well with this beer.

I really enjoyed this, and would absolutely see it as a panty dropper if BBA'd.
