Black opaque. Creamy coffee brown head with bubbles. Caramel, roasted malt aroma. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel, like drinking velvet. Slightly alcoholic aftertaste, otherwise ABV is not noticed.

Can @ AirBNB Palace. Black pour with a big tan head. Nice roasty, graham cracker, and dark chocolate. A touch of vanilla, light ash, and coffee. Not bad. Flavor is roasted malt, dark chocolate, and coffee. Some graham cracker sweetness, ash, and a touch of vanilla.

mcberko (14360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2012
12 oz. bottle, sent from wilco (thanks Mike), listed at 8.8% ABV, pours solid black with a medium tan head. Aroma is quite chocolatey, light roast, slight metallic notes and subtle coffee. Flavour of chocolate, metallic bitter coffee, low roast, with more cocoa notes coming in toward the finish. Very thin palate for a stout (especially one at near-9%). Drinkable and nothing offensive, but misses the mark in terms of body and complexity. Muffled flavours that make it seem like this isn’t the intended flavour profile. I don’t understand the high rating on this one at all.
