Pour is a dark brown cola like color with a tight light caramel colored head. Nose is heavy roast and char with a light bit of dark malt and a faint touch of fudge. Taste is even more heavily charred and a bit acrid. Some malt berry sweetness in the back and a hint sugary behind all the char. Medium to light body, slightly slick up front, well carbonated and fairly dry.

A classic dry stout with lots of roasted and burnt flavors. Hints of unsweetened chocolate and coffee. Medium bodied. Creamy dark grey head, which floats as one large mass - almost like a floating scoop of ice cream. Hides the ABV pretty well.
