A: pitch black and fairly oily, decent carbonation considering the relatively high viscosity.

S: vanilla, sherry, charcoal, a little oak.

T: smoky bitter charcoal, semi-sweet chocolate, milky coffee

M: low carbonation, medium to full bodied, silky in a chocolate milk kind of way.

D: pretty standard stout. I would expect a little more form Deschutes, but there was nothing wrong with it so I really can't complain.
