Had on tap at the brewpub in downtown St. Paul. Dark black mocha, thick, creamy mocha colored head with sticky lacing. Aroma has hints of coffee and dark bakerís chocolate. Very earthy and flavorful. Good bitter background with prominent coffee and chocolate up front. Mouthfeel, thick and creamy, some good oiliness that feels just right. Cold and rainy night - wife describes this stout as "the beer equivalent of comfort food".

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black color with a medium head. Outstanding aroma of port and sherry with a bit of coffee on the end. Oh man... the port turns very sweet in the taste and is just outstanding. Choclated laced malt shines through as well. Itís a bit on the watery side, but Iím willing to overlook that. A fairly light stout that Iíd drink pint after pint of. Outstanding.
