The look is really dark, big tan head, and black in color. The smell is roasty, nuts, smokey, inky, charcoal, malt, and good. The taste is fruit, malt, roasted marshmallow, and nice.

Thanks to errl for sharing this beer. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma and flavor are full of chocolate and roasted malt notes. I also get a bit of cream character that is very nice. There is also a hint of mint in the flavor. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Can via trade. actually poured this into a snifter. nose is cocoa with a weird piney thing too. pours pitch black with a large light brown head. Taste is a creamy and chocolate bliss. Very well balanced in terms of a light, just barely there roast and a full mouthfeel and creaminess without being too much. Seems to be missing some of the ester fruitiness that I prefer in this style when I drank it at first, but it seems to come through as it warms, but it could just be the creamiest. A very solid offering.

Beautiful black stout. Very little aroma, but what's there is coffee / dark chocolate. Very complex flavor. Coffee and chocolate, roasted malt, almost nutty. Thick bodies and chewy. Great beer.

from the can. pours very black with a hint of orange in the grey head. aroma is light roast with a sugary caramel or chocolate- i can’t fucking tell which at the moment. bitter roast with a slight smoke. walt would approve of how i came to have 3 of these cans, it involves a 780 mile road trip, many different work conversations, and some girl i just met telling me we were going to brew beers together if i move to santa fe. nice chocolate roast flavor near the end of this, just gets richer as it warms. Fuck all y’all i miss my friend.
