A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a short tan head that died down, leaving some specks of bubbles on teh surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of dark and roasted malts are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has lost of flavors of dark and roasted malts along with a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit dry and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This stout is quite flavorful and yet easy to drink, although it's not as smooth as some of the other beers in the style.
