Poured from a 12 oz bottle it gives very little head. The beer is a nice dark brown walnut color. The aroma has lots of red wine, cherry, and almond. I can only describe the flavor as a sour stout flavor with hints of chocolate and toast. There is a bit of sweetness at the beginning, but the sourness takes over.

Bottle in trade from thethrone. Thanks man!

Pours black with a nice creamy tan head. Smell is dark roasted malt, coffee, a touch of burnt ashiness, some dark chocolate and and some creaminess as well. Very nice. Taste is very much along the lines of the smell with some bitter dark chocolate, burnt malt and rich dark, dry coffee flavors abound. Just a slight twinge of faint fruitiness near the end, but bitterness takes it over and lingers subtly in the end.
Very flavorful for what it is, and a solid mouthfeel and drinkability. Very nice stout.

22oz bomber.

Pours completely black with only the faintest hint of light penetrating the edges. There's a small but thick mocha head that leaves only spotty lacing.

The aroma is nice with equal measures sweetness and roastiness. The sweetness comes from the dark chocolate mainly and the malts come across heavily roasted with some coffee hints. There are even some fresh green hops thrown in.

The taste is more of the same with the initial taste containing a kick of the green hops before the heavily roasted black malts take over. There is some cocoa sweetness on top with a finish that is a mixture of dry roasted malts and green hop bitterness.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied and extremely creamy with a dry, roasted finish.

This is a very good export stout and I like the hop presence thrown in for added complexity.
