Picked this up at Turnpike Wine & Spirits in Oak Ridge, TN as part of a pick and choose assortment of porters and stouts. Didn't know anything about it but took notice of it the minute I poured it in the glass. The appearance was excellent and the head was perfect. The taste was most excellent, chocolate and coffee present. The creamy texture was the icing on the cake. This is the best stout I've ever had.

9.6 oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

A- Very very deep brown, near black, but some highlights of dark amber come through on the edges of the glass. Light brown head retains at 1/8". Lacing doesn't appear.

S- Sweet malt. Some coffee and cocoa.

T- Light sweetness. I can definitely taste the roasted barley. A little bit of chocolate comes in too.

M- Medium oily body. Viscosity really lubricates the palate. A bit strange. A nice sweet finish to the beer however.

O- Interesting and decent. The depth in flavor was more than I was expecting, but the oiliness was a bit off. I don't know if I could drink more than the 9.6 oz. in one sitting.

A- pours absolute black with small tan head that disperses quickly into lacing.

S- Roasty maltyness and unripe bananas

T- nice roast malt sweetness with a slight bitter finish

M- good body with little carbonation which makes for a general creaminess

O- overall a good no frills stout that's a good session beer

Pours a deep amber to black in color with a tan head. In the aroma, a mellow coffee like maltiness. In the taste, a small alcohol presence and a mellow roasty maltiness. A smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel with a small dry roasty malt, with coffee and caramel like aftertaste. Mellow yet a boozy taste. A nice mix of coffee and caramel malts.

300 ml bottle purchased from LCBO for $2 CDN. Served fairly cold into a pint glass.

Appearance - very, very dark brown, nearly onyx black. Topped by a finger of tan head which dissipated quickly. Sparse lacing left behind.

Smell - boozy and yeasty, kind of a sweet Belgian funk. Some caramel and butterscotch.

Taste - sweet, vanilla, butterscotch and caramel dominate. Sweet continues, and there's not enough bitterness to cut through the sweetness. Yummy but definitely a dessert beer. Not boozy, but the booze is melded in the the sweetness in an obvious way.

Mouthfeel - smooth and creamy, medium carbonation and moderately light body.

Overall - decent stout, but very sweet and missing some bitterness to cut through and make this even better.
