On draft poured into shaker pint

A: beautiful dark as night with a fluffy mocha head you know this beer is going to be good by that deep mocha head

S: chocolate and deep roast maybe a slight licorice but it's faint

T: rich roast taste with nice chocolate finishes roasty sweet very malty maybe a little bit of booze but it's not at the front

M: it's not motor oil thick but the body on this is very full and it has a very nice coat on the tongue

O: very nice you will be smiling if you get this in your glass. It may not be anything new in the flavor department but it knocks it out of the park in all the regular stout flavors, smells, and feel.
