Pours opaque with a half glass and more tan, thick foam. Frothier as it recedes, which last a good bit, there is some sparse lacing.
Roasted malt greets the nose from several feet away on the initial pour. Milk chocolate and hazel nut are also present.
Taste is roasted malt up front that gives way to some sweet, chocolate, and bitter coffee in the end that lingers into the finish. There is a spice hop in the finish too. Back of the throat really caries the coffee.
Medium body at best with ample carbonation, maybe a bit too much, and a nice creaminess.
I seen some say this beer doesn't have a big enough body for a stout. it is not an imperial stout and stouts don't have to have a body that you have to eat with a fork and knife. I think the roasted malt might be a bit too much forward for me, could have used more balance but overall a solid offering. Enjoy!
