12oz stout bottle from Chip’s. Dark brown in color with a small khaki head. Chocolate and molasses on the aroma. The flavor is smooth and balanced, tasty with caramel and chocolate, not too hoppy. Medium-bodied and smooth with medium-low carbonation. Nice solid beer overall.

Bottle. Aromas of a traditional lager but pours a nice shade of dark. The taste is great. Sparkly but subdued hops hit up front and then a wash of cocoa, with a delicate coffee taste. The flavor is immense and the body is nice and light. Very awesome and easy drinking.
