Lingers in the finish. Ok.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle, variety pack. Aroma is a bit nutty, malty, and coffee. The color is black with minimal tan head. Has a sweet, tobacco, and coffee like taste. Slick texture, medium body, with bitter finish. Overall, I wasnít a fan of the tobacco like taste and prefer my stouts a bit more full bodied.
