[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

The pour was a murky opaque black with a large (2-3 finger) light tan frothy head that was mostly lasting, reducing slightly to a thick cap which lasted throughout and had good runny lacing.

The aroma was of a roasted cereal malt and a heavy leathery yeast with notes of molasses, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and a mild odor of bourbon.

The taste was bold and roasty with a nice malty feel and possessed hints of chocolate and molasses from the get go, and then became slightly bitter sweet with a strong coffee note and an alcohol presence that seemed stronger than the ABV that this brew possesses. The flavor lasted quite a long time after the swallow, with an alcohol espresso taste hanging out on the taste buds for a while longer.

Mouthfeel was almost full in body with a creamy, dry texture and a very soft carbonation.

Overall this was a very good rich Stout with a lot of flavor which did not take away from the alcohol taste one bit, making it a very enjoyable and easy brew to drink...
