Very very smooth and creamy. Chocolate aftertaste. Thin in the body. Very subtle porter like qualities in this gem of a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice and smooth. Very drinkable and has a great earthiness to it. Lightly smoked tasting. Tastes almost like a porter that is as smooth as a milk stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
