Poured into snifter from 22 oz. bottle.

A- Exceptionally dark. I've been pouring some other stouts that I thought were dark recently, this one makes them look light. The frothy dark brown head was about a finger thick. Lacing seemed to stick around. I couldn't stare at it too long, as it's an enticing looking pour.

S- Expresso and ground coffee up front. Cocoa, dark chocolate, and a little carmel. Undertones of burnt malts and grains, as well as slight hints of oak and wood. Hops hiding in the back.

T- Excellent. The expresso taste isn't quite as strong as it smells, but it is still very present and goes excellent with the chocolate present. Extremely smooth tasting and well balanced between the expresso, roasted malts, and hops. A bit of the oak present after the finish. Alcohol is well hidden.

M- This is definitely a tad lighter tasting than it appears, but in a good way. I thought it would be a fatter, more full-bodied feel, but although its still pretty thick, it didn't quite feel as dark as it looked. Smooth on palate and a great finish.

O- Awesome stout. Im a fan of expresso/coffee stouts and this one definitely goes near the top of my list. I also like the fact that its usually not too hard to find near me. I will continue to go after this one for as long as GD puts them out there. Thank you for an excellent drink.
