  • Pours black with a hint of ruby red around the edges of the glass. The pour produces a quarter inch khaki colored head that dissipates quickly leaving a thin layer of foam resting on top. Watery lacing.

    The aroma is a combination of dark roasted malts, milk chocolate, bitter chocolate, and a hint of dark fruits.

    The taste is semi-sweet with a blend of dark roasted malts, bitter chocolate, molasses and a bit of coffee on the finish.

    Medium body with medium carbonation. A watery mouth feel with a bitter dryness in the finish.

    Overall this is an enjoyable beer with nice flavors that are well balanced. Very drinkable for a stout since this stout has a lighter body than normal. Try one!
