Appearance: Nearly pitch black, with a heavy tan head and thin lace.

Aroma: Crisp cocoa and roasty, burnt chocolate.

Taste: Strong on the cocoa tip, with more burnt chocolate, some coffee, nuts, and even some fruit underneath it all. Deep, dark stout goodness.

From notes 9/27/15. At the source.

The proper pint is full of coal black brew and a tiny tan froth. Smells of roasted malt from start to fininsh, and not much else. The palate is filled with dark and sweet chocolate, roasted malt, currant and plum. Has a somewhat grainy, nutty finish. Medium in body and little to no alcohol heat is noticed.

A good take on a classic style.

The Backmasking Stout poured an opaque black with a nice tan head that left some lacing. The scent had roast. The taste is blend dark chocolate and espresso. The mouthfeel was fuller in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this was a solid stout with good flavor.
