Black body that is opaque. Some lacing and a small light brown head. Nose is chocolate, roasted malt and some sort of stale grain. Taste is sweet and smooth, with chocolate and a little bit of coffee. Much sweeter than the porter but lots of water in the taste and mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Gaylord Location) This is one of the better beers Ive tried at this very commercial brewery. Thick, oily, black appearance with a thick, almost nitrogen, looking head. Chocolate is noticable in the aroma but the roasted malts predominate. Wonderfully sweet flavors of cocoa and traditional stout bitterness. A must try if its available.
