Pours impressively dark with a large and extremely persistent head,
Smells lightly of dense malt, smell is otherwise somewhat bland, a good aroma regardless
The taste is very rich and chocolatey, a good balance between the stout flavor and alcohol content, better than most stouts I have had in regards to taste, both overwhelming and drinkable this beer is solid

A solid, classic stout, but there are many better ones out there.

Tried it out of a bottle, had it several years ago but did not remember enough to recall it. For starters, there is little smell from the bottle, which was kinda strange. Clean mouthful, but taste of coffee is prominent at the end. Beer leaves a coffee aftertaste too, Good beer overall.

Pours opaque darkest brown with one finger creamy tan head that dissipates quickly. Good lacing. Smells of chocolate and coffee. Bread and roasted malt. Great flavor. Bitter chocolate. Expresso. The afore mentioned roasted malt, almost sweet chocolate with a mild bitter finish. Like many this was my first stout. Tastes great and earned a spot in my beer fridge yes ago.
