Smells mostly of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate smells. Taste has a hint of hop bitterness at the finish, but not overwhelming. Mouthfeel and carbonation are very smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thegreenrooster (3399) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Pour is an almost black with a small white head. Aroma is some chocolate malt, molasses and a fruity hop. Flavor is a bitter roast with some chocolate notes, a slight mint and bit of hops hiding in the backround. Finish leaves a of roast and molasses on the tongue. A decent beer, not as intense as some impy stouts, but worth a try.
