12oz. Pours jet black with a huge brown head. Damn this looks good! Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and a slight twang. The flavor is super smooth with a nice body. Chocolate, tons of roasted malts, light caramel, and finishing with vanilla. What a great beer!

Not a thick stout but very tastey. Dark color and good flavors throughout. Really enjoy the draft at the brewery, but the bottled beer is great to enjoy from the other side of the state.

Full bodied pour is dark brown with dissipating tan head. Aroma of coffee and cream. Taste has slight bitterness and creamy nuttiness. Finishes smoothly with appropriate bite and nice buttery feel. Great pint.

Clear, but very dark ruby amber, foamy one-finger head, swirls of lace. Good looking. Taste is roasted malt with a little cocoa and a little smoke. Near the finish bitter chocolate brings it to a close. Surprising body for 5.3%abv, but far too bitter to be a traditional English style sweet stout. Good, not great.
