pours jet black with a dark cream colored head.

smells like coffee, plain aroma and nothing special amongst other stouts.

tastes like coffee. burns the tongue at first. finishes dry and bitter. good tasting beer. goes down smooth as well.

overall this is a good beer but nothing great. thin-ish for a 6%+ stout but not water-thin.

12 oz can. Pours black with tall, creamy, beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of toasted malt, vanilla and coffee. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is of toasted malt, coffee, vanilla, brown sugar, prunes and herbal hops. Finish is long and dry. Very nice brew.

12 oz can poured into a DFH snifter.

Pours near pitch black with a finger of mocha foam. Aroma is chocolately, with a hint of roasted coffee bitterness. Predominant flavor is roasted malt with some coffee notes. Not a lot of vanilla flavor to speak of, but I prefer things that way. This has a lot of roast bitterness in the finish, and finishes dry, yet full bodied.

This is an enjoyable stout. Drinks easy, yet provides a lot of roasted malt flavor.

Cola black with a dense cocoa head that hangs around a bit and leaves lacing.

Smells-Roasted malts, burnt sugar, chocolate

Taste-Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, hint of vanilla/marshmallow sweetness

Mouthfeel- smooth and heavy

Overall-would have preferred more vanilla but a nice stout for those that aren't crazy about overly sweet beers but still like a chocolate stout.
