JBPortland (733) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Pours dark black/brown into english pint glass with 1 finger head. Nose is coffee, cocao, chocolate cake, dirt. Mouthfeel is medium body, slightly sticky. Taste is chocolate, coffee, cream, roasty, earthy, maple, caramel. Finish has mild bitterness and some light hop notes. A solid stout. Would love to see a coffee, chocolate, or barrel aged version to enhance some of whats already there.
