3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with thin layer of tan foam. Decent lacing. Sweet aroma of chocolate and caramel with some roast and alcohol apparent. Sweetness first in taste of dark chocolate and then some roasty, burnt flavor, followed by brewed coffee. Alcohol adds a somewhat peppery character and is very apparent but not disagreeable. Semi full and somewhat sticky mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Nice stout. Flavors meld well together. Would buy again.
