Description
Thick, pitch black Stout with huge (a little too much probably) off white head that hangs out for ages and lots of roasty coffee and chocolate notes

Recipe Details
Tasting Notes Four months after bottling this it is starting to taste quite nice. It takes about 5 minutes to pour 12 ounces as it is a little over carbed. But the result is a think dense creamy head that sticks around for ages.
