Aroma - Rich burnt malt. Appearance - Can't see through black with a nice thick brown head. Flavor - Nice rich burnt malt character with a noticeable amount of bittering hops. Its a smooth stout, but not as smooth as their porter. The acidic finish is a bit distracting in an otherwise very good beer.

12oz bottle shared by Ed. Poured a deeper black body with a big bubbly head of deep beige. Aroma is chocolate and vanilla, well done toast, seems like a light touch of caramel. Flavor is nice and roasty, darker chocolate, vanilla, dark toast. Solid beer.

12oz bottle thanks to Pizz5116. Pours pitch black with a small tan head of foam. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate, and not much else. Taste of black roasted malts, licorice, dark chocolate, and caramel. Pretty solid.

It pours out very dark. The initial taste is subtle chocolate and has a dry aftertaste.

Lots of burnt malt, leather and earth in the smell. Medium body, with notes of milk and coffee in the taste. Great stout!

The bottle says licorice. I can't taste any licorice. Bit of a let down. Otherwise it's a pretty meh stout. I was expecting more.

On tap at Taco Mac. Pours near black with a creamy mocha head. Good splotchy lacing. Aroma is roast, cocoa and a bit of licorice. Taste is moderately sweet followed by a fairly dry and mildly bitter finish. Roasted malts and smoky flavors dominate. Creamy mouthfeel with some nice bubbles. Excellent stout.
