Doesn’t stand out by any means, but it is a great stout. I don’t get the licorice much though (but I just finished a KBS so balme it on founders). Not much bitterness, and fairly drinkable....20 min later. I do taste the licorice, great stout, weel made, good product.

Roasted coffee and slight sweet malty aromas. Deep dark color with thin tan head. Citrusy bitterness balances with the dark roasted grains. Palate is dry and flavors dissipate quickly. Overall a very nice beer. Made me crave more stouts!

Bottle into a goblet. Pours dark black cola with a tan head. Aroma is heavy on dark chocolate, espresso, brown sugar. Taste is dark espresso and chocolate with a bit of molasses and dark fruit. A nice, hearty, full-bodied stout with a nice lower ABV.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Luscious deep brown beer with a brownish white head that subsides quickly into smallish bubbles. Somewhat subtle nose with aromas of dark chocolate and dark roast coffee. Flavor is complex, medium sweet upfront with rich molasses then settles into some bitter notes of unsweetened chocolate and heavily roasted malts. Aftertaste doesn’t linger too long, which is a bit of a downer, but still a fine beer.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. Small tan head burns off quickly to a bubbly collar. Good adhesion. Medium toasty aroma, some bready scents. Taste is predominantly dark chocolate for me, with some light licorice and balancing hops, plenty of roasted malt as well. Really good viscous stout - I expected a higher alcohol percentage, but that may have ruined the balance. It’s perfect the way it is. About as good as it gets in the traditional (not imperial) stout game.
