Black with a small tan head. Smooth going down. Nice hop balance gives it a nice kick. Very dry. A little boozy. Easy going tho.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2016 Black pour with a light brown head. Roasty chocolate and coffee aroma. Taste is sweet chocolate, slightly roasty, and hints of dark fruits. Soft creamy feel, full body. Very solid brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. BBD 05/05/16. Pours a medium, well retained light beige head, with slight lacing. over a clear dark brown (SRM 35) body......nose is light chocolate, hints of coffee, light dried fruits including plum, raisin......taste is mildly sweet, with plum, raisin, fig notes, with cocoa, chocolate from the roasted malts, finishing with a mild hop bitterness, balance to the malts.......mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky, moderate alcohol warmth, slight acidity. This is pleasant, easy drinking beer. It is a bit low on complexity, for the style, in both aroma and flavor, but that does not detract over much from its enjoy-ability. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

Heavy and dense, with aromas of cherry and currant as well as chocolate and deep caramel. Thick palate, chewy chocolate. Some bitterness to balance the beer with stone fruit and spicy hay.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, liquor, dark fruits, toffee, roasted malt. Flavor of booze, vanilla, dark fruits, and sweet malts up front with a cocoa and roasted finish. Sweet up front but decadent and complex palate. Definitely one to go slow with.

Definitely a fine go-to stout. I’m quite impressed with the brews this brewery offers and this will be one I pick up often as it is available. Just a tad bitter on the end this sweet stout fits the bill as one of my favorites.
