Another great beer from Carlyle. Loads of coffee and some Belgian yeast. I could drink this one every day.

Dark black with a small brown head. Heavy coffee and green herbal aroma with light Belgian yeastiness. Moderate cocoa bean flavor, coffee grounds, and very light banana (especially after it warms). A solid stout, but not sure the Belgian yeast really improved the underlying beer.
