Foam/bubbly head, long lasting, solid lace, the color of dark cold brew. The smell is malt-heavy and sour. This beer's taste itself is soapy and bitter, too hop heavy. This is really just pretentious stout. I'm ultimately unimpressed.

L: Pours a dark brown black color with notes of dark red where the light hits it, with a medium creamy tan head and very little lacing.

S: Dark roasted malt, mixed with notes of coffee, a little chocolate, some peat, earthiness and ash, very nice smelling.

T: Dark roasted malt, earthiness, notes of coffee and bittersweet chocolate, mixed with a light peat and some ash, a light to medium bitterness at the end.

F: Medium body, wish it was slightly creamier.

O: It's been around for a while but this is still a good go to stout.

12 oz bottle poured into a nonic.

A- Deep brown, bordering black. Head is dense and just off-creamy in texture.

S- Sweet caramel and vanilla. Roast. A little bit of a wood character. Faint booze as well.

T- Sweet vanilla roast. Almost a tobacco character comes out.

M- Body is medium full with some slight astringency. Aftertaste is long but enjoyable.

O- Not bad. Solid, not over-the-top stout.

The beer poured a solid brownish-black colour with a thin tan coloured head. Aroma was roasted malt, burnt wood, coffee, and vanilla. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was roasted malt, dark chocolate, and molasses. The better of the two beers I had this evening.

Everyday stout. Not outrageous.
a) Black, good 1 inch loose head, lasts, and provides lacing all the way down glass.
s) Too faint, and while hops, coffee, malt, char - another oily smell lowers the mark.
t) Ample bittered of charcoal, coffee, chocolate, hops, and malt. Hoppy dry stout.
f) Pleasing but light feel, bittering on tongue, nice finish, char remains.
o) Solid every day stout. I'd have one a day.

Big, roasty stout packs a ton of flavor. Uses plenty of rich roasted barley and a large amount of hops. Faint coffee presence but more of a roasted flavor than actual coffee. Full-Med. bodied, but extremely crushable.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a tulip

L: Dark, dark brown pour.. nearly black. 1.5 fingers of off-white head. Modest ring of lacing.

S: Roasted grains... chocolate and coffee. Sweet and toasty.

T/F: Follows the nose. Nice roasted malts and grains. Good cocoa and espresso notes. Mild hopping at the end adds some bitterness to the roast. Medium in body. Finish is espresso and slightly acidic.

O: A pretty standard stout. Good quality and flavor. Nothing earth shattering but a stand-up representation of the style.

12oz can into a pint glass. canned 9/8/16, so 11 months old.

looks like a great stout, black body with some amber tones when held up to the light. Big creamy colored head, which leaves thick lacing.

aroma is only of roasted malt.

Kinda tingly on the tongue, roasted malted barley with some faint coffee notes. The hops have faded after 11 months, and the malted barley is a bit more heavily roasted than i would like personally.

medium heading towards full on the mouth, roasted malt on the finish.

Overall, and bearing in mind that this beer is almost a year old, it's still a little too roasted for this particular palate. A fresh one in all it's malted glory would likely be too much for me.

Bottled on 7/11/16. Served from bottle into glass at home. Pours deep black, completely opaque, with a small short lived but still velvety tawny colored head. Aroma full of roasted malt, lightly burnt toast and a little dark chocolate. No detectable hop aroma. More dark roasted malt flavor with bittersweet chocolate. No detectable hop flavor. Medium bitterness, medium carbonation and a dry finish. No alcohol flavor detected. Full bodied with a smooth creamy texture. The bottle label describes large amounts of hops used in the brewing but that is undetectable in the glass, although this may just be a matter of age. Overall this beer has an uncomplicated straightforward aroma and flavor but a great mouthfeel and finish.
