I used to like this. i used to think it was heavy! Not anymore. Didnít it used to have a thicker taste? Now, it goes down sweet and somewhat thin, a medium roasted and mildly hoppy aftertaste on the sides of my toungue. In my mind, i compare it to other stouts, and it just doesnít hold up anymore. Has the world changed or have I changed?

What stout should be. However, the draught sucks out of bottle.
