Chocolate caramel and toffee flavors. Aroma is a little roasty. Finish is slightly sweet to add some depth. Nice tan head to add some creaminess to the texture. A solid drink and a very accessible stout.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
One finger head, the color of light brown sugar. Sticks around after the pouring. Ultra dark brown opaque body. Some bubbles coating side of glass. VERY slight toasty aroma. Good body that could be a little heavier to be a foreign stout IMHO, but not bilge water thin either. Light roasty flavor. Very drinkable.

22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, toasted bread, espresso, and bitter chocolate. Flavour of bitter espresso, burnt / roasted malt, toasted bread and some caramel - quite dry, bitter and burnt. The flavour profile dissipates toward the end, leaving a rather empty palate, that is quite dry and burnt.
