Dark black beer with a thin dark brown head. Aroma is very sweet and chocolatey. Milk chocolate and a touch of earthy character. Flavour is very chcolatey with just a soft roastiness on the back. I quite like this actually.

bottle thanks to unclemike. Pours a black color with a big bubbled dark tan head. Aroma is verty toasty malt and very much coffee. And the taste is a dry coffee flavor with some dry hop/malt in the background. Carbonation is right, mouthfeel is a bit watery. Still a fun beer to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a mostly opaque with dark mahogany edges and a thin, wispy-lacing dark tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet dark caramel and chocolate malts with some mild earthiness. Body starts fairly full with a nice, light sweetness and well-dissolved carbonation drying out more toward bittersweet, earthy dark chocolate finish. A pretty good dry stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A more than competent stout that lives up to its rating. Pours black with a whisp of a white head. Decent roasty aroma. About average mouthfeel, with some chocolate in there. Very drinkable stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured very deep brown, perhaps black with a grand initial cap of deep brown head.. receded rather quickly. The aroma picked up lightly smoked dark chocolates above all, simple, but well-executed.. nice ín malty. The flavor had nice dark chocolate and light smoke initially, but picked up heavy sour tannins on the back-end.. came back with some dried dark chocolate and cocoa at the finish. Probably a touch lighter on medium-bodied on the palate with a decent flow. Not bad.
