Pours black with a brown head and roasty aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is sweet and roasty, of rich chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and light fruit notes with bitterness and a smooth, dry finish. Great stout

As it was poured, picked up aroma of coffee, cocoa and mesquite. Nice frothy head and good mouth feel. Taste is dominated by malt, molasses and coffee. Overall a good stout I'll have another barkeep.

Pours black as the night with a large, dark tan head.
Nose shows chocolate, heavy roast, soft coffee. Also some light booze and a hint of wood smoke.
Heavy roasted flavours too, some chocolate and a fair bit of booze.
Nice creamy carbonation.
Would be even better if the booze wasn’t so full-on.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Chtonic and turbulent. The color of a dark stormy night with a chocolate sea foam cover. Viscous, smooth dark chocolate nose, with touches of chocolate liquor and raisins. The body is exceptionally sweet, perhaps a bit too much. Sugary chocolate and some leafy hop bitterness, but not enough to balance out the sweetness. Started off strong, but tastes rather unattenuated.

Black pour with a tan head. Smells like a pan of fudge brownies - big chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, slight anise. Flavor is also chocolate forward but is very complex. Anxious to see how this ages.

Woah! Nice stuff from SN. Aroma is big chocolate notes, fudge, some roast, and light vanilla and coffee. This one pours nice, with a black body and a tan head. Very oily and slick body. Taste wise, I got some light caramel, tons of chocolate, fudge, some anise, a touch of roast, and some sweet malts. Bitter finish. Very nice.

Bottle. Super dark brown pour with a light brownish head. Roasty aroma melds well with lots of good chocolate notes, some brownies, and I can actually smell some light hop notes. Flavor is sweet, roasty, lightly bitter, well balanced and damn good!

Cool. Creamy and heavily roasted coffee aroma. Some serious black malt and creamy, heavily roasted coffee on the nose. In the mouth it is slick with initial fruitiness that progresses through raw, metallic graininess to a heavyweight bitterness in the finish.
