12oz bottle from the sampler case. This was an average stout with very little uniqueness. The coffee flavor was weak.

Poured from the bottle. Nice head, very dark black colour. Aroma is of malted barley. Flavour is very sweet, there is a bit of roasted notes some coffee and chocolate, however bitter. Overall its drinkable, and kinda a smooth transition through autumn.

Almost opaque brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is dry and has a fine minerally crispness. Dry coffee and a whisper of dry cream. Mild sweet esters, well buried. Trace of dark fruits. Dry finish. Coffee linger. Okay.
