Covered in the fine-laced hairs of a khaki-colored head lies this jet black, terribly handsome stout. A tangle of Belgian yeast dominates the nose, intertwining fruity esters and restrained phenolics. Mere whiskers of hop bitterness balance assertive roasted malt character. Its thick body and wooly mouthfeel warm the cheeks with substantial alcohol. Moderate effervescence combs through an oaky finish for a dense, distinguished, well-groomed pint.
