A deep black color with a tan head. Very very sweet. Too sweet for my taste. Some hops in the flavor. Not bad, but not my best stout.

Black. Actually sucks light out of a room. Completely, totally opaque. Fresh coffee aroma. Full, rich palate. Coffee and burnt toast in the falvor, then a mellow but bone dry hop presence. Big malt flavors, too, with maybe a little smoke flavors. Very filling, very satisfying.
