Liked this beer write a bit. The biggest problems are that I got absolutely no head when I poured and the mouthfeel is truly lacking.

The color is a beautiful dark copper black, but again no head. The smell and taste both had a hint of bourbon though I don't think this is barrel aged. This hint is why I looked it so much. The mouthfeel is slightly syrupy up front but fades immediately. I really wish it stuck around longer.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of chocolate, roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts, smoke, chocolate, a touch of sweetness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer.

Appearance - Pours near black with cola brown highlights where light can penetrate. The head is the color of cocoa powder and peaks at 2 fingers thick. Great retention leads to a thick layer of surface suds and a thick ring around the edge. Lacing coats the side of the glass in large spots and exhibits good stick.

Smell - Sweet malt with a roasted edge. Hints of chocolate and metallic earthiness.

Taste - More sweet than roasty. Malty grain sweetness with lesser notes of milk chocolate. Hints of coffee roast and caramel. Low leafy bitterness hits toward the finish, giving the brew a bittersweet aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Closer to medium in body with a moderate creamy texture and low carbonation. Bone dry finish.

Overall - Drinks more like a Euro Stout, like an Irish Dry, than an American Imperial. I'd recommend it just for the experience, but I'll likely pass on buying it again.

Not a bad stout...if you like molasses. Good but expensive. Worth the money if you enjoy molasses.

poured smoothly with very little head.
aroma had hints of caramel, malts and coffee. the taste on the tongue was very bubbly , but not over bearing. Definitely not a typical stout feel almost like a pilsner feel. The flavor was pleasant, not overpowering or over bitter but eventually smoothed out at the end.
