hand-bottle thanks to Conner, pours black with a medium tan head, suprised since it’s hand bottled, looks great. Aroma is dark chocolate, light coffee notes and some vanilla. Flavor is very roasty with an almost peated malt smokyness and again coffee and dark cocoa. Light cream and vanilla notes in the finish but overall a very solid stout!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Pours near black, this tan head with a thin alcohol-like film appearance. Roasty, sweet nose with malt and coffee. Plain texture, but a strong bite on the tongue. Thin and sparcely administered lace. Sweet, dark, barley taste. The yeast contributes a fruity, almost apple-like quality to the finish. The finish is also full flavored, salty and malty, and a tad dry.
