Perhaps my favorite style and this is definetly a good example of it. Poured dark and hard, providing a thick dark head with the consistency of stiff whip cream. Smells of brown sugar and vanilla with hints of freshly roasted coffee. provides a milk mustache as you lift it to your lips. flavor of espresso or chocolate covered coffee beans. ends with a nice amount of bitterness reminiscent of a good quality black coffee, leaves you with the creaminess of a chocolate shake.

This stout is awesome! Dark beer with thick initial head. Roasted coffee and chocolate notes. Feels thick, rich creamy, and velvetly on the palate. Subtle carbonation. Tastes roasty but not too bitter. Perfect amount of slightly sweet notes. Great beer!

Bottle. Dark, frothy head. Smells coffee and molasses, some fruit. Incredibly rich and smooth - a long-lasting tooffee-esque aftertaste. Delicious!

Aroma- creamy coffee, milky sweetness, toast, caramel, milk chocolate, good hop undertones. Taste- lovely creamy sweetness in the mouthfeel, smooth and a bit silky, roast malt, lots of coffee, milk chocolate, slight smokiness. Really nice.

BBD 12/16/15. Pours dark as a starless night. Poor head volume, outstanding retention and lacing.
Outstanding nose of chocolate, caramel and hints of vanilla and roast.
Medium body with a smooth texture that has creamy moments. Almost no effervescence. Apparently, this bottle leaked it’s nitrogen. Appearance and palate scores have been adjusted based upon peer reviews.
The flavor profile is outstanding. Intensity is reasonable, fairly complex and superbly balanced. It begins with the classic stout flavors, albeit in a muted fashion. Light roast and hints of coffee waif over milk chocolate along with caramel. The middle brings a subtle bitterness, mostly from the roast, with a touch of coffee flavor. The finish is a long slow fade of sweet roast notes.
