Bottle to pint glass.

AROMA:Deep woody sweet aroma. Toasted malt.
LOOK: Thin black appearance, medium off white head.
TASTE: is dark chocolate, ash.
FEEL: is too thin for a stout and and then too flat to be a porter/dark ale.

Not bad, but something off here.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a thick off white foamy and creamy two finger head. As the head dissipated, thin clingy spider webbing lacing sticks along the sides of the glass. The smell had a big luscious sweet milk chocolate rolling into a dark chocolate and roasty coffee tones. Vanilla and woody notes help to balance. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors to combine and make sweet adding a light smoke to further balance. A super smooth creamy roasty sticky sweet aftertaste leads into a big sticky sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a nice roasty coffee to sweet vanilla stickiness on my tongue. Overall, uh...wow, where did this come from! Love this stuff! Definitely would have again!

Smooth and smokey with hints of vanilla. If you're looking for heavier notes try Ballast point. Did get the peaty flavor as well. Easy drinking and very light to either have another or step up on the stouts you have in your fridge. Tastes more like a Porter to me based on the lack of heaviness
