look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Look: deep brown-black with tannish head that quickly disappears; not creamy

Smell: dark chocolatey, coffee, layered aromas--more than I expected, and darker

Taste: chocolatey and dark roast coffee, a touch of caramel malt, maybe very slight raisin, smooth and balanced, almost no bite/aftertaste

Feel: smooth but not creamy, low carbonation

Overall: Quite impressed. Loved the dense coffee-cocoa flavors and thick, smooth feel even without a big, creamy head. Just very balanced.

Pretty good stout but the only problem is that it's too foamy

Lovely head on the nearly black brew. Coarse mouthful of carbonation. All of the shades of roasted malt with a charred background.

This is really strongly coffee flavored, but the surprise is that's apparently from all the malt. That's what the brewer claims, noting that it's finished with "roasted barley." In any case the coffee flavor is amplified by the bitterness. Grainy flavors with a touch of burnt cereal. More of the bitter twang to finish.

Overall this is strongly flavored and more of a challenge to the taste bids than typical stouts. Still, it's a robust malty mouthful for the adventurous. On tap at the brewpub in Santee. I see it's available in bottles now as well.
