Pours a dark black color with a thick mocha three finger head that sticks around for a while, crazy head retention. Aroma of strong roasted malts, coffee, bitterness from the hops sweetness from the malts and licorice in the back. Taste follows the nose just intensified. Slightly dry but not dry stout level. Moderate mouthfeel. This is a great middle of the road stout.

Pours dark thick, coffee black with a nice creamy thick caramel-colored head and almost cinnamon hue. The aroma is very smoky, light roasted malts, good. The flavor is medium roasted and sweet malts, light coffee notes, and smoother bitterness that round out nicely on an easy medium body. So smooth and delicious.
