Dark brown or black with mocka head. Aroma is fruity malt and a little chocolate. Taste is leaning more toward dark chocolate with fruit in the background. Has that distinctive chalky feel that comes with bitter dark chocolate.

A hearty stout, with notes of chocolate, coffee, toffee. Full, rich. Great in summer or winter. Goes well with just about any meal or solo.

tillmac62 (684) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2016
BOD 12/1/15. Pours black. Outstanding head volume and lacing, world class retention. Light nose of roast and chocolate. Light body that is water like. Slightly below standard carbonation level with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a lackluster finish. The flavor profile is good. It lacks intensity (think stout lite...very lite) but is well balanced. The flavor is pretty much one dimensional and lacks complexity. It begins with a blend of light roast and chocolate. The middle adds a touch of hops but very little bitterness. The finish is a slow fade of the middle.

OrthoDoc (169) - South Carolina, USA - APR 10, 2016
At the brewery: Chocolate and coffee on the nose and taste. A little more flavor than the porter but lower abv so mouthfeel is thinner. Not as much flavor or as complex. I prefer the porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
