Poured from 12 oz bottle into Duvel tulip. About a year old.

Pours a black color. Small head, but pretty decent for an RIS. Diminishes off to a lumpy film. Light specks of lacing.

Love how intense this aroma is. Its full and somewhat roasty and has some rich milk chocolate. Slightly sweet, and very faint coffee.

Very flavorful and complex. Right up front, the sweet chocolate comes through, followed by a nice blast of roastiness. I like how they used a butt-ton of roasted grains without it becoming too dry or bitter. Nice touch of warming alcohol on the finish.

Nice full body and low carbonation. Pretty drinkable for 10%.

A very enjoyable stout overall. Nice sweet chocolateyness and roastiness. Will be anxious to see how this is with another year on it. Will enjoy again.
