A - Pours a very dark color with a thick, caramel colored head almost 3 fingers in width and leaves an unquestionable lace on the glass.

S - Gives off the aroma of bitter chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts.

T - Enters with a touch of chocolaty coffee and leaves with a bitter, roasted taste.

M - Thick and creamy with moderate carbonation.

O - Overall this is a great stout and I have plans on drinking more of these in the future.

I think this an underrated beer. It pours very dark brown, almost black, with a nice one-finger beige head that recedes fairly quickly. It smells and tastes like dark chocolate with coffee notes, with a decent hop presence in the background--sort of like a junior imperial stout. This is a solid beer.

This one couldn't wait to get out of the bottle and celebrate. So after pouring 85% foam between an Ayinger mug and a Sunset tall glass and refilling with the excess from the bottle it finally came to a mushroom cloud atop the Sunset glass and sl-l-l-l-l-lowly settled. There's still a smoke puff of scud cloud at top and that's fine with me daddy-o. Everything has its purpose and as such this cloud performs its duty. Similar to winter cloud cover does in keeping heat from escaping and the tempertaure from plummeting this buffer zone keeps me from gulping this fucker right down. Exultant dark mark, mucilaginous hops and an indeterminable scintilla of fruit that gives a puissant taste which perorates in idiolallic tongues. Yes, it is OK to look over the precipe, laugh and then consider jumping.

This begins my foray back into stouts from IPAs. Drank one; then I had a "session" of the remaining 5. [Note: This is NOT a SESSION brew, I do not care what anyone says or thinks.] Rich chocolate/nut aroma. Spotty sheen of tan head. Even a vigorus pour does not yield a lasting head. Very opaque black, transmitted color is a deep amber with ruby tints. Slick and slightly chalky/resinous palate. Superglue lacing. Stout up front, straight porter in middle and aftertaste. Each phase is plesant. Definitely NOT one-dimentional. Even my emitted noxious gas was plesant tasting. Soft conditioning, made me feel fuller than mouthfeel. Drinkable fast or slow, but if you start slamming you'll soon go to sipping. Almost perfect, except for palate being a little chalky. If you like Guinness, step up to this stout tough guy!
