Well done stout. Nice and roasty with a good bit of coffee and chocolate character without any harsh ashy notes. Dry and very smooth and full bodied with creamy carbonation. I could drink this all day.

22 bomber from the brewery. Smells amazing, malty chocolate with bread. Looks really thick, black with some brown on the edges. Nice foamy fluffy head. Really nice sweet chocolate flavor without being overwhelming. I really like this, exceptional offering.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, poured into an imperial pint glass. The aroma is immidiately a warm cookie and cacao, which then turns to chocolate malt (strong lactose presence) and a roasted grain late. It pours a dark, nearly opaque, brown black with a tan, soft foam and soap head that leaves moderate micro-bubble lace, and reduces to messy soapy medium thin ring, before disappearing from the surface altogether. The taste is a medium / medium-high sweet with a medium bitterness supporting it. It’s oily and smooth, turning sticky with warmth, and thin. A zippy carbonation aides the drink in going down easy. A medium body starts with notes of licorice that fade as chocolate malt takes over. There a light roasted and burnt quality near the end with some citrus appearing at the finish. It’s a bit gritty and grainy, with hints of rye late that lightly linger.
