Pours a dark brown color. 1/2 inch head of a dark tan color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of roasted malt, sweet malt, slight alcohol, hint of pine, and a hint of dark citrus. Fits the style of an American Stout. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable bitterness. Tastes of strong roasted malt, sweet malt, slight hops, hint of pine, hint of dark citrus, and slight alcohol. Overall, good appearance, body, aroma is simple, and the blend is dramatically bent towards roasted malt flavors and bitterness.

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.75 A: Black color. Just over one finger of frothy tan head. Retention is about average and a decent amount of lacing is left.

3.75 S: Moderate roastiness. Lactose like tanginess. Chocolate and vanilla. Caramel and light molasses. Quite nice.

3.25 T: Taste is like the nose, but less impressive. Moderate roast. Chocolate and vanilla are subdued as is the caramel. Lactose or lactose-like component is still there.

3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lacking creaminess.

3.0 D: Started out strong, but ultimately didn't do much for me.
