In the bottle. Dark brown head, but a thin head. Has a phenomenal aroma of roasted coffee. The flavor is a strong thick rich dry roasted malt. Tasty with a medium coffee and lightly chocolated flavor. I think I need to try this fresh on tap someday to fully appreciate it.

Pours very dark. Aroma is coffee with chocolate subtleties. Thought it was a tad to spritzy, but an all around good drink none the less.

Rich dark pour with a thin brownish head. Aroma is stout and inviting. Chocolate and roasted coffee in the nose. Flavors of bitter chocolate, strong coffee, dark caramel, and finishes heavy and thick. A full bodied brew and very delicious.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - Pours deep dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malty chocolate and coffee. Mouthfeel is a little thinner than I expected. Bitter coffee flavor with a hint of sweetness on the finish. I was expecting a bit more from the flavor after savoring the aroma for a while, but still a very nice stout.

This is a tasty stout. Lots of dark roasted malts on the nose and almost a hint of meatiness. Flavor is mocha-like with a long, long finish.

On tap at the brewpub. This is a delicious stout. Very dark pour, with mocha head. Extreemly inticing roasted and nutty aromas. The flavour is nice and carmelized, with some nutty and coffee tastes in there. Nice after taste as well.
