Faint aroma of roasted malts. Deep black in color with crimson on the edges. Fairly thin and flat with little head. Very watery mouthfeel. Tons of soy sauce in the flavor, some roasted malts, additional light and fruity cherry flavors. Overall this is a pretty middling effort.

Pours a rich opaque with a thin-lacing, frothy light brown head. Aroma of roasty malt and bittersweet dark chocolate. Body starts with a mildly sweet dark maltiness a touch of resiny hop bitterness and a smooth roasty dark chocolate finish A nicely-balanced, true to style sweet stout. Thanks to tever for the bottle!

Very aromatic. Roasted malt and lots of smooth chocolate. Deep black with a fluffed up mocha head. The fore is as roasty as you will find switching to toasty bread crust and mild coffee and toast toward the finish.
