2008-09-06. Pitch black body with a modest tan head. (4+) Mild roasty malt aroma. Flavour is fairly sweet, light roast malt is pervasive but surprisingly not assertive. Smooth average plus palate is light for a stout. (3+) Decent, but I preferred the porter I think. On tap at the brewpub.

12-ounce bottle. Huge medium-tan surging head, nitro-like. Modest toasty malt on the nose, but a nice rish combination of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, and a bit of licorice. Very creamy mouthfeel. Would gladly drink again.
