3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

This poured a darker brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma was lots of dark chocolate, some dark fruits and roast too. Flavor was a decent balance between sweetness and roast. Nothing really stood aout here besies some light dark cherry notes. Pretty standard stout but nothing bad at all.
