650 ml bottle
This has been sitting around long enough so I cracked it open one night. It is a great stout that I should have drunk a bit sooner. While still fresh this is so good that I would have consumed it immediately. Don’t make the same mistake yourself.

Aroma / Appearance - The oily black base slides easily down the sides of the glass. A thin mocha head lasts for quite a while. Chocolate, raspberries, coffee, and smoke meld with ease into a chewy texture. Solid and robust it fills the air with goodness.

Flavor / Palate - Plums, coffee, and dark fruit stick to the throat. Almost as sweet as a lightweight imperial stout the texture is filling from start to finish. It avoids being sticky and saccharine. Enjoy it as long as possible before you move on to your next tick.
