Just flat black in color this poured with a nice creamy but slightly fizzy head. The lacing was sticky and excessive.

Dry chocolate, maple, maybe cream and some molasses meet the nose.

The flavors are chocolatey, more to a malty chocolate, slightly roasted, tinges of molasses and a little bit of cream.

The feel is thick and velvety, maybe a bit warm, with a creamy smoothness.

This is a very simple beer but it's good, lives up to the supposed style, and yields a satisfying drink.

New to drinking stouts so this was a different kind of taste for me.

A- Dark almost black color with a thin brown head
S- Reminded me of a campfire..very smokey with hints of chocolate
T- Also reminded me of a campfire....at first very smokey and then towards the back you get a
little kick of chocolate
M- Creamy and heavy
O- Like I said new to stouts so this was a new taste for me. Not my favorite but not the worst I've ever had. The smokiness up front was different but had a nice subtle chocolate taste to finish off.

A - Pours black as hell, cant see anything through it. MOTOR OIL.

S - Roasted malts, chocolate, sweet smell, with lots to want for.

T - Smooth chocolate and dark roasted malts. Lots of creamy vanilla with a slight bite. Really good.

M - Smooth and creamy, medium mouthfeel, just right carbonation.

O - Amazing stout, as it warms it surprises every sip. Amazing.
