Release #8. Pours almost black with a small head. Not a lot of aroma for the style. Mostly roasted coffee and malt. The flavor is similar. Not very sweet or creamy like I want my sweet stouts. Decent but not great.

Aroma: nice mellow roastiness, slight sweetness, chocolate. Pours very dark, not quite opaque, about 1" of tan head with average retention and decent lacing. Flavor is chocolate, roast, caramel malts, slightly nutty. Palate is creamy, medium body and carbonation. Very easy going, drinkable stout.

22oz bottle, release #6, in trade with Sledutah. Used a pint. Small white head. High carbonation. Good retention and lace. Aroma is roasted malts and sweet chocolate and marsh mellow. Taste is vanilla up front, some caramel and mocha in the finish. This stout has a nice smooth, silky mouthfeel that does make you desire more. WELL worth a try. Thanks Craig!
