Very nice coffee taste on the tongue. Balanced well with some bitterness that cuts through the heavy nature of the beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled April 7, 2011. Nearly perfect black. Very familiar stout smell, strong in malt, sweet and smoky. First taste is blunt and a bit harsh. After taste is more subtle, but lets try. The bang comes from plain amount of material put to this beer. The aroma develops to earthly basement style stout. This is quite dry stout, like the categorization says. Very decent, but not the world class prime example of this style.
