Black in color with very minimal head. Smells of dark chocolate, cherries, cola, coffee. Taste is sweet with chocolate and cherries being the most prominent flavors with some hints of vanilla. Alcohol is well hidden and this beer goes down smooth and easy drinking.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a custom taster pint: canned 12/18/18 and purchased at the brewery.
A: Pours a black color with ruby highlights, a light brown, less than one inch head, low retention, and low key rings of fine, spotty lacing.
S: Aromas of dark chocolate, cherry, cookie, vanilla, plum, and dark coffee. Slightly tangy.
T: Sweet from what tastes like lactose sugar. Flavors of dark chocolate, cherry, cookie, molasses, vanilla, plum, and dark coffee. Bitterness substantial, but insufficient to entirely offset the sweetness.
M: Full bodied with relatively low carbonation.
O: A really enjoyable and flavorful stout that is entirely akin to Devil's food cake with chocolate frosting and cherry filling. Yum.

Tall can directly from the source in BKLYN...canned 12-18-18 stamped on the bottom.

Dark , dark pour, minor darker mocha cap, leaving nice looking super fine lace on the glass.

Sniff of sweet chocolate, dark fruit.

Super tasty and super smooth, more chocolate, more dark fruit, vanilla, light roasty goodness. Complex, flavorful, velvety, well crafted and highly enjoyable....so much great brew being brewed in Brooklyn....beer center of the universe?

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a short tan head that died down, leaving a small patch of bubbles in the center and a minuscule collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of dark and chocolate malts are present in the nose along with notes of cherries.
T: The taste has flavors of chocolate malts and black cherries along with hints fo vanilla beans.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found the taste of this stout to have a very good balance between the chocolate, cherries, and vanilla. It also did a very good job at hiding any traces of alcohol.

Serving type: can
