COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a full-bodied stout with plenty of roast flavor as well as hints of molasses and chocolate. Ridiculous amounts of black and caramel malts make this stout smooth, creamy, and utterly opaque.

Pours pitch black with a smooth brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, licorice, coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is smooth, roasty and sweetish with loads of dark chocolate, coffee and licorice. Finish is smooth and roasty with some licorice and coffee. Quite nicely balanced and tasty.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Black color with a small white head. Nose is smoky, roasted chocolates. Taste is similar, thin mouthfeel but still creamy and satisfying. This is a very well done stout, I can see why it’s so highly rated.

Bottle from Chris in a trade. Thanks! Poured a black oil with a thick mocha head in my tulip at home. Head lasted and some nice lacing. The aroma was dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, vanilla, caramel, roasted malts, nuts. The taste is similar with the dark chocolate and caramel...then the vanilla, lactose, and roasted goodness on the backend. The texture is velvet and full bodied. Some oil. Very smooth and delicious.

Faint roasted smell... above average stout appearance. Roasted malt, faint chocolate on taste. Seems like a milk stout. Slightly bitter on aftertaste. Overrated
