No aroma whatsoever. Strange. Solid black with a thick tan head. Lots of lacing. Starts off with coffee and a little molasses. Slightly bitter. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, dark fruit, chocolate, coffee, soy sauce. Flavor has kind if an umami savoriness to it. I've had other beers that get soy sauce notes like this and I'd really like to know what causes it. Oxidation? Ok stout.
