The beer had a good amount of carbonation and a good mouthfeel. Maybe a bit to much roasted malt but will have to try some others in this style to compare.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of roasted malts, some oats. Taste is roasted malts, coffee, oats, hints of chocolate, alcohol is well hidden. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

had this waiting in the fridge, I think since father's day
(not hitting the bottle too much these days)
but this one is WELL worth the wait: I am tryly tempted to give this a over all 5!

a - super dark on the pour - darker than cola. just a humble half finger of head, deep khaki in colour. no lacing to speak of.

s nice, deep caramel sweetness

t Hoo Ahh! just an ever so slight touch of bitter, think choco-coffee with a bit of caramel. SMOOTH

m thick and creamy

d near perfect. LOVE this brew. to be savored, never guzzled.

Black color with mocha head. Aroma has dark fruits, mostly figs, brown sugar and sweet malt. Taste is really well balanced. First you get the rich malt, followed by a roasty bitterness. Body is not heavy but feels really smooth. Overall it's a tasty, easy drinking stout with a nice mouthfeel.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a narrow tan collar around the edge of the glass and delicate lacing on the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of dark roasted malts are present in the nose along with some hints of chocolate malts.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of roasted and chocolate malts along with a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied, a bit dry, and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has bold flavors of roasted and chocolate malts and has a nice smooth mouthfeel.

Pours a lovely dark brown with no real light penetrating it. Decently sized, creamy-looking head of tan doesn't last long except as a film.
Smell is rich, toasty, hoisin sauce, meaty, slightly smoky. Well balanced.
Taste is smoky, soy, meaty, licorice/anise, richly malted and expertly balanced. Exquisite.
Body is full, effervescence is properly restrained. Smooth and appropriately rich. A great example of the style.

L- very dark but you can get some light out of it
S- chocolate and vanilla
T- goes down smooth but then you get a harsh after taste. For me if I'm gonna have a stout I like it to be smooth thru and thru. I love these flavors but the harshness is overwhelming to me
