4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark brown with a creamy brown head. It dissipates fairly quickly leaving a bit of lacing. Smells of chocolate, dark fruits and bit of coffee. Those same things follow to taste with some alcohol. A touch of bitterness that increases a bit as it warms. Nice oily mouth. This has everything you want in a stout.
