COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed to a smooth, chocolatey, semi-roasted ale that bridges the islands of porter and stout. And if you aren’t a fan of bridges, there’s always the canoe.

Cam from Four Firkins. Pours black with a brown head leaving a lot of spots of lace. Aroma has dark chocolate, molasses, caramel and some roast. Taste is of sweet caramel, molasses, heavy roast and some bakers chocolate. Medium to full bodied with a touch of alcohol. Finishes more bitter than sweet on that bitter-sweet scale. A solid nice entre! 14.3

Poured from a can into english pint glass. Medium tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and hints of pine and grass. I really like this beer even though it is a bit thinner than most stouts.

can thanks to CLevar. Aroma of dark, rich chocolate and coffee. Behind that there is some cocoa powder and biscuit, bready character. Pours pitch black into a snifter with a light brown head that laces well. Taste is initially a little roasty, almost burnt, and dark bitter coffee. Flavor leans a lot more toward a stout than the nose would indicate. Fairly drying finish. overall a very nice stout.
