Tap sample. Poured a black color with a large fizzy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark coffee malt aroma. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet coffee finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good rich beer.

On tap at brewpub
Transitioning to the darker and heavier end of the spectrum I was looking forward to a great beer. This was an excellent sweet stout despite the unusually warm weather. I may have to keep my eye out for more sweet stouts as the season changes.
Aroma / Appearance - The medium black base is like melted handfuls of chocolate. Soft and agile it glides around the glass. The nose is like a fine glass of melted chocolate paired with skim milk. Malts drive the entire profile.
Flavor / Palate - Milk, creamer, and coffee blend well. Bakerís chocolate carries the body to a chewy finish. A robust winter warmer works well regardless of the temperature outside.
