12 oz bittle poured into snifter

A: Rich black brown brew with a little light escaping. Not much of a head but a small ring.

S: Roasted burnt alts, light coffee, nutty, chocolate, a little alcohol.

T: Light smokiness, nutty, roasted malts, light chocolate, a little oakiness

M: Medium bodied leaning toward fuller with a creamy finish.

O: This is a pretty solid stout and the light smokiness plays well off the sweet light chocolate and roasted malts making ths a really pleasing offering. I like the smoke does not overwhelm.

Smells rich of coffee. More so than it tastes. Not too thick.

Poured into a tulip glass.

A: Blackish brown with a mocha one finger head that dissipates fast. Soapy lacing.

S: Dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, anise.

T: Follows nose with a surprisingly good taste. The dark chocolate really rocks it. Let it warm for maximum pop. Nice coffee and vanilla mix.

M: Medium with medium, dry carbonation.

O: A decent entry from Blue Pants. Would definitely drink again. Wish I'd bought their barrel aged Pinstripe at the checkout counter.
