A- Poured from a can into a 22oz snifter. Used motor oil in both viscosity and color. No light at all is passing through. 1.5" frothy dark head that slowly emerges from the depths of the beer. It was actually pretty cool to watch! Leaves good lacing and caps the beer with a thin layer of foam

S- Roasty chocolate. Slight alcohol presence and more as it warms. This is going to be good!

T- Very much like the nose. Roasted bitterness. Malty. Dark chocolate-like bittersweetness.

M- Medium full. Smooth and mouth-coating. Just like a stout should be. Slight alcohol warming after a bit.

O- Great stout! Something I would like to pick up in multiples on the next release. Possible candidate for aging, but I don't know where it would go, flavor wise ....

Pitch-black body with a decent, rich, thick light brown head. Currants, deep roasted grains, bitter chocolate aroma. Powerfully rich malt flavors; deep and robust; milk chocolate; really nice alcohol warmth throughout; lightly perceptible bitterness near the finish. Heavy body; silky smooth.

An incredibly well-made stout. Immense balance and complexity throughout and a real joy to sip.

A- Jet black with two finger mocha head that quickly fades. Mild lacing

S- Roasted malt and chocolate with mild alcohol notes

T- Dark chocolate, coffee hints, toffee and fruit like qualities. Upfront alcohol smell is well hidden in the taste and sweetness. Great malt flavor on the backside.

M- Thick and creamy but not cloying. Great bodied beer

O- Great beer overall, lots of refined character and great mouthfeel. Definitely a winner.
