Bottle. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel malt, chocolate, and coffee. The flavor is mostly roasted malt and coffe, with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Nice aftertaste, maybe a little too much coffee for me.

Black with a big tan head. Smells and tastes sweet and a little roasty. Good stout but I think it really should be a sweet stout instead of just a stout. It’s a bit too sweet for my liking as an everyday stout. Still though it’s solid.

Black with a thick dark tan soapy head. Sweet aroma with some light roast notes, a bit of hops, too. Lighter palate. Light chocolate roast flavors over a slight hop middle and bitter finish. Wish I could get enough to give it a proper session.

Nice dark color with toasty mild chocolate flavors. a little carbonated on the palate. a lighter taste with not too much depth. Could be a bit smoother.
