Pours a black-brown with a robust brown head, leaving behind some early lace. Bitter chocolate, dark roast, hint of prune in the nose. Lively carbonation early, seems to play itself out to become a more creamy mouthfeel later. Chocolate liqeur, coffee roast, hint of greenstick hoppiness. Quite rich, and very tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle, via acertain. Completely black pour with a frothy one finger light brown head. No sediment noted in bottle. Roasty aroma with a lactic sweetness. Notes of espresso and chocolate. Roast and burnt toast flavor up front with a lactic and slightly sour finish with some espresso. Texture is oily and medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. Very mouthcoating leading to a lengthy finish. A really nice Sweet Stout, packed with flavor. Worth seeking out.
