It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of roast, lactose and coffee. The taste was of roasted malt, hops and coffee with a dry finish. Not bad.

Black pour. Big tan head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Roasty taste. Sweet yet roasty. Good beer.

Pour is a black with a large tan head. Aroma is nice with lots of roasted malt and a bit of chocolate and maybe a bit of alcohol which is weird since this is only 4.2%. Flavor is again a nice roasted malt with a nice char left on the tongue. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but the roasted malt is as good as some of the higher rated stouts. Nice session stout.

Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV. Thanks Justin! Pours a black appearance with a thin brown head. Anise, vanilla, light cocoa, a bit dark fruity aroma. Fairly earthy, dark chocolate, anise, dry, chalky flavor.

Moving out of KS rate-a-poolza. 12oz bottle poured into a Big Eddy globe. BNo date but should be pretty fresh. Purchased out of fridge in store.
First rating for this beer’s since coming out of retirement . This is a surprisingly good beer for a very bad brewer. Aroma is slightly fumy and slightly sweet cocoa. A little bit of a baked goods thang going on. Flavor is lighter with just some dark malts and clean background behind it. Low bitterness, a bit of an empty finish. Nice beer, can drink this anytime.
