Draft. Loads of rich chocolate and roasted coffee balanced by some hop bitterness and malty sweetness. Pretty much a template for strong coffee-influenced stouts.

Bottle picked up at SL... I have really enjoyed their lastest (wild dog releases) This one follows suite. Nice dark black color.... Big mocha colored head with a nice lacing left on the snifter. Good nose, chocolate, roasted malts, slight bittering hops, oats, coffee. Taste is creamy smooth. Lots of chocolate, oats, coffee, roasted malts... Very nice... (borat voice) . Texture is oily and smooth. Overall: Another winner by Flying Dog!
