Dark as expected with a great lasting head. Smells malty and black licorice. Strong malty and slightly sweet with a bite to it. Medium light body but good carbonation. Pretty good beer.

On draft-poured into and snifter glass.

Jet black with a small head-nice lacing left on the glass as I sip.

Kind of a weak smell. Chocolate, some coffee and figs. A touch of anise.

Taste is similar to the smell. Not sweet at all. Flavors develop as it warms. Quite complex with layers of flavor-very nice. No booze detected-impressive for a 10% beer.

Very smooth and easy to drink. Not creamy, just smooth. Dangerous.

Wow-this better than expected. Lots of subtle flavors going on. Will definitely have again-highly recommended for those who like complex flavors without the sweetness that tends to go with the style.

Serving: 12 oz bottle poured into a 9 oz Libbey Embassy snifter.

Appearance: Inky dark brown with a froth of light brown foam; spotty lace.

Smell: Dark roasted coffee, smoky grains and toffee.

Taste: Roasted grains, slight smoke, dark coffee bitterness, cocoa and an underlying maple syrup sweetness. Slight alcoholic heat.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, creamy smooth and moderately carbonated.

Overall: Big, boozy, bitter and roasted stout. Mixes well with Yang IIPA: intense hops and roasted malt balancing each other.
