A - Pitch black pour with a massively thick toffee colored lacing.

S - Roasted chocolate cream aroma.

T - Oak, some spiciness, bitter bakers chocolate, some alcohol presence.

M - Full medium body, velvet body, very low carbonation.

O - This is a really nice stout! Recommended.

There is a touch of anise in the Chicanery stout. There is l so touches of roast. The beer poured an opaque black with ecru head that is leaving a touch of lace. The scent has hints of earth but not much else. The Mouthfeel is fuller in body with smooth carbonation. Overall it's ok.

No pop when I popped the cap. Feared it may be flat b and looked for a bottled on date, none. No head in the pour. Smells awesome, massive bourbon and sweet toffee. Tastes mild and Carmel up front, bitter and charred on the finish, tons of alcohol present throughout. Not flat but very, very low carbonation - not sure if by intent or not.

Overall, a very tasty beer that may have suffered a misguided fate with the seal. But then again, as this warms and I sip this I'm beginning to find the laid back feel increasingly enjoyable and conducive to this beers palate. In finishing, I would drink again.

Solid RIS. Packs a kicker at the end, did get a very distinct dry, almost chalky choc with alittle spice.
