Pours black with a light tan head.
Nose shows roasted malt, caramel, bready malt, liquorice and cocoa.
Flavours include bitter one-dimensional roast, booze, a prominent milk chocolate note and bready malt.
Nice creamy carbonation.
A bit more complexity would be nice for a beer of this strength.

I have passed this one up so many times I thought what the hell and bought it.Pours black as my kids moms soul.I dont smell much...maybe some plum and cocoa.First sip is a bit boozy but gives way to the cocoa and othe signiture stout flavors.It seems to have that pop rocks dissolve on the tongue effect that I tend to like.For 7 bucks it aint bad and I would definatly revisit this one if I could not find a Ten Fidy or a Stone in stock...not bad at all.

Pours the darkest brown hue with a creamy two finger head and lacing everywhere,the smell is molasses,plums and dark mocha,the mouthfeel is full bodied with moderate carbonation and has tastes of dark coffee,chocolate,molasses and finished bittersweetness and overall it's quite nice without being over the top cheers.
