a: piraat snifter, pours nearly black in color with some mahogany around the edges, coated with a nice mocha colored head, good retention

s: loads of rich, dark chocolate roasts and a good balance of earthy dark pine hops, smoky charred barley, old coffee grounds, some toffee sugars peek out, just packed with deep stout character and roasted goodness

m: lightly carbonated, medium-full body, not a thick stout, but appropriate

t: lots of roasted barley char, bitter dark cocoa and bakers chocolate, burnt coffee, just a quick flash of sweetness at the start before going dry, leaving deep roasted flavors and a mild bitterness to linger, might seem touch thin but it hits some dry stout notes quite well

d: really a great stout, not flashy but very well crafted, guess some don't like the black patent - but I dig it, the dry finish and moderate mouthfeel contribute to high drinkability

my first from Olde Hickory, bomber picked up at Bruisin'

Pours a dark chesnut brown with a slightly tan head. Fairly nice nose here, picking up some dark chocolate, peat, and just a touch of smokiness. Taste as good as it smells. Hints of chocolate, with some coffee, and again a faint smokiness to it. Also some nice hop bitterness to round it all out. It's a little thin for my liking and wish it where a little creamier. But all in all a very nice session stout.
