  • Drank this about 60 degrees or so.

    Pours inky black with a half glass of light brown, frothy foam. Pretty. Lacing is thin and sticky while the retention is about average.

    Aroma is a bit dry carrying roasted, chocolate, and coffee scents but not in equal amounts. Roasted is strongest. Not a huge sniffer.

    Taste is sweet and big roast up front, giving way to wave after wave of change in the finish: chocolate, coffee, bitterness, and some dark fruits.

    Thick body with mild carbonation but a bit creamy.

    A touch of alcohol comes in as it warms but minimal then and doesn't really come into play. A quality stout that could make any stout lover happy. Enjoy!
