Drank from a nonic glass, poured from a bottle. Pours black with nice fluffy, light beige head, and a tiny bit of carbonation. Has aromas of roasted notes and belgian candy. Has a nice smooth initial taste that ends with a very, not very good bitter, dry finish. I expected more.

Great every day stout. Aroma like a chocolate covered espresso bean. Taste like a super smooth roasty oat forward stout. Well balanced. Great beer.

For those who don’t like an overly aggressive stout this the stout for you. ABV is not overpowering makes for a good year round stout. I would buy this again not on my top of the list beers but for sure an easy go to beer.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Such a good beer. I got it in the 750 ml bottle. The 2 Row barley, torrified wheat and oats give is a silkey mouthfeel. The roasted and chocolate malt and the generous portion of dark caramelized candi sugar contribute to the apperance and aroma, and the Belgian yeast combines it all to such a great palate.
I will be getting this one again..

As Belgian style stouts go, this is a very well balanced beer. It is a very smooth drink that avoids any type of hoppy finish. If I came came across this at a bar I would for sure order 2 or 3 :-)
