I could’ve sworn I rated this one already but oh well, here goes: Pours a dark rich mahogany with a tan head. Nose full of smoke, chocolate, and caramel. Notes of chocolate, charcoal, toffee, coffee, and caramel flavors on a solid frame.

Dark black color, smells of coffee and dark chocolate. Also tastes like coffee. Very thick. Nothing overly special, gets this score because I just like this style.

I’m a big lover of stouts but nothing really stands out about this particular one. It has a malty flavor but I would consider it to be one dimensional.

On popping the cap one is greeted by a very pleasing aroma of roasted malt.Pours with a small off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. The flavour is very balanced, not overly bitter and harsh like FES and yet not overly sweet. It goes down rather smoothly with a slight alcoholic burn and most importantly it's not overly heavy on the palate and it leaves a rather pleasant after-bitter.
