L: Thick and heavy, nearly black with a rich mocha head. A little bit of ruby red shines in the light. A nice foam rests on top and drops solid lacing behind.
S: Rich and roasty, a bit of char on the nose with something reminiscent of coffee adding dryness to a honey-like sweetness. Further notes of dark fruits and a bit of balancing earth and flora from hops add to a complex balance.
T: Roast is forward on the tongue, sweetness more subdued but letting chocolate and dryer notes pull from the barrel. Some vanilla undertones along with light notes of honey countering char come through in a heavily malty beer that nonetheless has a good dry hops balance to it. Sipping slowly continues to bring out the complexities.
F: Rich and thick, this is a big stout with a heavy body. Smooth in its own way, the char and roast add lots of dryness and even feel like a French-pressed dark roast coffee. A good amount of carbonation keeps it flowing well without scraping too much.

Serving: 12 oz bottle (“bottled on 1/25/18”), poured into a 9 oz Libbey Embassy snifter.

Appearance: Deep, dark brown with a short but dense head of tan bubbles that recedes to a hazy film.

Smell: Salted pretzel, dark chocolate, and tobacco.

Taste: Bitter dark chocolate, salted caramel, licorice, and charred wood.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate but smooth carbonation.

Overall: A nice sipper with rich, complex malt body and some interesting savory, earthy wood notes.
