mfhennig (276) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2016
From a bomber, a gift from my nephew. Iíll call it dark brown, beige head fades to a ring, no lacing to speak of. Aroma is ash, coffee, roasted malt. Flavor is bitter chocolate and coffee with a mildly bitter finish. I didnít get a vanilla flavor or scent. (They must have forgot to put it in my bottle.) I wouldnít call it a sweet stout, Iíd call it a damn good stout! I need to go back to Oregon!

Sweet with some ashy and acid roasted touches. Firm roasted flavours, some licorice, chocolate. Not much depth for 7% but quite harmonious.
