Pours a pitch black color with a thin brown head, no lacing and light carbonation. Nose of roasted barley, oatmeal, chocolate, malts and some mild hops. Flavor has a sweeter malty chocolate & oatmeal taste with some caramel-toffee maltiness and mild hoppiness. Body is moderate but with some thickness and the carbonation is fairly mild. Pretty creamy and tasty!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Deep brown/black body. Frothy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate. Hint of coffee and floral hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/slick texture, lively carbonation. Rich and nicely balanced. It expertly avoids the saccharin sweetness of lesser made sweet stouts that are this rich.
