Dark black with a thin tan head. Lots of malt roastiness - more coffee than chocolate flavors going on. Tons of malt overpower most of the hop flavors with the finish being an nice burnt bitterness.

Really liked this one. Aroma was full of roasted grains. Appearance dark stout, typical color. Taste was really good nicely balanced, not too roasty, malty, or bitter, just right. Great beer, just wrong side of the country. If it was local it would be a regular buy.

Bottle. Pours black with thick mocha head. Smell is sweet chocolate, caramel, roasted malts, dark chocolate. Taste is dark dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, sweet chocolate, some coffee. Tinge of hop bite in the end. This is really solid. In the days of summer time saisons and lighter offerings, this was a nice mix up. But a really good stout.
