3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pretty typical stout in terms of pour, aroma, and flavors, but I still really enjoyed this one. Tons of roasted, earthy malt and coffee flavors with some bread, toffee, burnt caramel, and dark chocolate notes. Really well balanced.

12oz bottle thanks to Glouglouburp in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, a good amount of dark fruits/chocolate, some light coffee, a little dough, and hints of alcohol. Flavor the same with a cool blend, but something seems a little unbalanced.
