Pours a dark brown with off-white head. Cocoa nibs, vanilla, oak aromas. Slightly bitter malts, offset by chocolate sweetness. A nice stout.

Bottle. Nose is deep, dark chocolate with some dark malt but not really any roast; more like ink and plum. Pitch black pour with a noisy, sudsy brown head. Watery-light medium body loaded up with velvety dark chocolate, off-dry and smooth with little fizzes of carbonation but nothing harsh. Some earthy, deep toffee but nothing sticky or too-rich, with flits of sharp berry and cherry here and there, some plummy depth, very mild and earthy hops. Actually does achieve a measure of balance, but it’s smooth and gentle all the way through with nice malt layering/complexity. Surprisingly well executed and tasty!

12oz bottle via six pack from Lacey Liquors. Pours a dark brown color with a thin fizzy tan head. Aroma of roasted nuts, raisin, dark chocolate, and toffee. Taste is rich roasted malt, cocoa, raisins, and walnuts. Mouthfeel is a little thin for a stout, but is really tasty.

Solid effort from the garden state, not as good as the elite stouts, but above average. Glad I bought a six pack.
