Should be the "Double Dark Stout"?? The best thing at the brewpub. A full bodied, creamy stout that was not overly sweet. Some oatmeal in the flavor with a lingering, lightly sweet finish. Good. Faint chocolate aroma.

Pours an opaque, very dark brown color with a chestnut colored head. Big smoky coffee nose. Mouthfeel is smooth and moderately thick. Flavors are mainly campfire smoke with some underlying ripe, red fruit. If you like a smoked porter, this is for you.

Draught at the brewpub. Big and malty but with a big dark chocolate/espresso malt edge and lower sweetness that makes it almost refreshing despite the heft. Black as night. Definitely more up my alley than sweeter takes on the style.
