Dark black pour. Light head, some laceing. Barley, hops with. Touch of coffee on the nose. Coffee toast chocolate. A touch of bitter citrus in the after taste. Not very smooth for a stout. Good beer, not great. A bit disappointed as I am a fan of magic hat.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured a pitch black hue w/ a large tan creamy head slowly diminishing to a cap w/ good lacing. Medium aromas of mildly sweetness, roasted cereal, chocolate, roasted coffee, and vanilla. The taste was a roast forward, but not heavy handed, allowing the other flavors to be enjoyed as well to include: sweet malts, chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Medium to full bodied, creamy texture and soft carbonation. I’m glad they brought this beer back into the rotation, it is an enjoyable stout.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown with a beige head. Initial aroma of sweetened cocoa, quickly followed by mild notes of chocolate and roasted malts. Felt it was somewhat simple and thin in terms of body and texture. Little alcohol presence.
