Stark shiny black with a moderate, uniform dark tan foam that slowly settles to a spotty film and bubbly ring leaving fuzzy spots of lace.

Smell is peanut butter wafer with chocolate, medium roast coffee and maybe a touch of woody pine and black licorice.

On the palate this starts with a moderate, lightly frothy body exhibiting bitter cocoa, coffee, chocolate and roasted peanut, but finishes thinner and sweeter, like cola, but semi-dry.

Nice dark appearance with moderate tan head that desipates quickly. Aroma is a mild nutty coffee. Taste is also a mild nutty coffee without any bitterness. Very smooth.

Deep brown and clear. Hardly any head on a pour and only a bit remains afterwards. Very good lacing on a sip.

Nose is strongly roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, and a touch of nuttiness.

Taste is the same roasted malt, cocoa, bittersweetness, minor vanilla, and minor coffee.

Mouthful is medium but thin and aggressive. Carbonation is above average. Finish is dry.

This seems like a great base stout for barrel aging. Very drinkable. Not to remarkable.
