Received from an old friend in Jacksonville -- Poured from a can into a prairie snifter. Black pour lots of tiny bubbles rising up, off white head. Aroma is roasty, sweet, chocolate and booze. When you drink you ate meet with a smooth super creamy opaque, black liquid that was imbued with a hint of roast and lots of character. I may be biased, but this is a hell of a stout.

Fairly roasted nose with dark coffee notes, if anything. Flavor has some dark chocolate and burnt coffee flavors with more roast. Not bad but definitely heavy.

Not that boozy, a decent stout with a bit of barrel flavor. Pretty nice but not super exciting.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is a bit sugary, boozier than you might expect from the abv. Sweet caramel, burnt, sweet finish that’s a little acidic. Not a fan.
