Opaque brown beer with a creamy head that stays on as a thin film for a bit and leaves a cascading sheet behind with each sip. The aroma is roasted malt, char, molasses, licorice, coffee and dark chocolate. The taste is sweet with a nice roasty malt and dark chocolate taste with char bitterness and molasses twang. Really chewy and nice stout with good carbonation.

Poured a black body with minimal tan head and lace. Roasted and chocolate malts in the aroma. Sweet, sticky, slightly boozy body with dry roasted malt finish. Good balance and has a little bit of everything.

Pitch black in color and impenetrable to light. There's a fingernail of brown covering half of the rim and a quarter of the top. I smell roasted barley with hints of molasses and just a whiff of smoke. The taste is a blend of roasted barley, molasses, plums, and just enough smoke to make you keep wanting to come back for more sips. The mouth is slightly warm, chewy, and sticky with alcohol.

2016 vintage
~ 6 months from bottling date

Appearance- Pours a black color, opaque, oily body. Half finger thick, medium tan colored head, creamy, dissipates to thin layer. Tons of alcohol legs on glass.

Aroma- Rich roastiness, charred malts, coffee, dark chocolates, cocoa, smokiness. Dark fruits, brown sugar, caramel, sweet chocolates, touches of vanilla.

Taste- Dark chocolates, bittersweet cocoa, roasted malts, coffee, smokiness, leathery earthiness. Molasses sweetness, dark fruits, chocolate, caramel. A bit of earthy hop on the finish.

Feel- Full bodied, rich and creamy, thick and sticky, coats mouth. Lower carbonation.

Overall- Incredible blend of rich roastiness and sweetness. Starts with big robust qualities, but then finishes sweet and smooth.

Big, bold aromas and flavors; plum and cherries soaked in brandy, hints of mocha and espresso. The texture is a bit too slick for this heavy hitter.

This sticky sweet concoction tasted of black licorice, chocolate cake batter, vanilla, and charred toffee primarily. While this was sweeter than typically like my stouts, I did enjoy my 10 ounces. Not one I'll look to revisit though.
