Pours a nice, firm dark brown head with excellent retention and sticky lacing. Beer is dark black with purple highlights.

Roast barley, a hint of coffee and dark cacao, and a slight bit of dark, overripe fruit dominate the nose. A bit of cream as well.

Waves of roasted barley wash over the mouth, carrying hints of cream and a not insignificant metallic taste. The barley is dominant; the metallic flavor is unwanted.

Full, thick mouthfeel; not quite chewy. Sticky finish. Alcohol is noticeable.

This is an enjoyable stout, but it's simply not up there with the best of them.
