COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a meal in a glass. Brewed with 7 different malts and served cask-conditioned, you should be ready for a full onslaught of creamy stout intensity. Broadly in the style of a Foreign Extra Stout, this is our heaviest and most intense year-round offering.

Pours black in the glass with a hint of ruby red when held up to the light. Soft on the palate, very, very creamy. Dark roasted cocoa and coffee notes followed by an almond nutty aftertaste. Nice aroma of the same dark cocoa and coffee. Overall a wonderful brew. Thanks for BarZigKin for sharing!

Thanks to errl for sharing this beer. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma and flavor are full of chocolate and roasted malt notes. I also get a bit of cream character that is very nice. There is also a hint of mint in the flavor. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Can via trade. actually poured this into a snifter. nose is cocoa with a weird piney thing too. pours pitch black with a large light brown head. Taste is a creamy and chocolate bliss. Very well balanced in terms of a light, just barely there roast and a full mouthfeel and creaminess without being too much. Seems to be missing some of the ester fruitiness that I prefer in this style when I drank it at first, but it seems to come through as it warms, but it could just be the creamiest. A very solid offering.
