Thanks to the kind soul that shared this. Pours a deep black with a tan head. Nose is roasted malts, dark chocolate, black coffee, and some licorice. Flavor is similar with dry roast, some slight dark fruit, licorice, coffee, and dark chocolate. Medium in body and lingering roast in the finish.

Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours dark brown color with brown head. Aromas of roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee. Sweet roasted malt flavor, bittersweet chocolate with hints of espresso. Medium to full body with soft carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Thanks Craig.

Poured into my bruery tulip. Dark black with a one finger brown head, looks highly carbonated. Aroma is light, coffee and alcohol. Taste follows the nose, coffee,malts and alcohol. This is very sweet, definitely a sipper. The mouthfeel, makes you want to drink it faster because of how smooth it is but the sweetness slows you down, not a bad stout just not very complex. Leaves me feeling a bit indifferent. Would I drink it again? Yes. Would
I buy/stock up on this? No

Smell is a little fruity and chocolate. Kind of reminds me of a chocolate orange (just a little). Some chocolate in there too. This is interesting.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. A big tan head on a black beer. A nice nose of dark chocolate. A nice chocolate flavor with nice west coast citrus hops. This is nice and is almost a classic.
