Bottle. Watery black with small tan head that goes away quickly, not very much head. Nose of slight burn toast and coco. Medium body, nice bitterness throughout, easy drinking, makes your mouth water a bit. Some toffee flavors, along with hints of dark chocolate. Good beer, great flavor.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours black with medium head. Light body stout, very dry. Not a lot of flavor to speak of here. Not a fan of the dry stouts. Better than Guinness, but not by all that much.
