Pours pretty well black, as should be expected. Huge, creamy, off-tan head of thick, sticky carbonation. Very nice. Leaves trickly detailed lace, too.

Aroma is cocoa and a little burnt malts. Not bad.

Flavor is sweet up front, a little cocoa, a little nutty and roasty malts, but overall very smooth. Much better, thicker body than the "draught" version. A little hint of sharp hops at the finish, but it's easily masked by the sweet roasts. Overall a solid, if sweet stout that's a great session brew.

Very dark, almost black, and shows a hint of amber color when shown to the light.

Heavy mouthfeel, smokey nutty smell, full smokey roasted taste. Taste stays with you long after drinking.

A very strong tasting beer that is very good and also very filling, but you have to be in the mood for it. Probably couldn't drink more than one in a sitting.
