A solid black appearance with a moderate tan head. The aroma is chocolate, cookies, and some coffee. The flavor contains some chocolate, oatmeal raisin cookies. The palate is a bit thin and the finish is sweet. Overall a decent stout.

Body starts with a decent dark caramel malty sweetness and a good balance of roasty chocolate and raisins with a touch of bready yeast. Finishes drier, toasty and bittersweet. A nice stout.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Long lasting cake batter colored head, and nicely opaque with a lighter edge. Very little aroma, probably the biggest fault. Nose was of coffee and a bit of caramel. It was very sweet with flavors of coffee liquor. I liked the mouthfeel...was milky. Smooth, sweet, quiet finish.
