The best of their regular beers. Pretty tasty and a nice mouthfeel. Still pretty middle of the road though.

Pour this and it’s black, yes as black as any beer I’ve seen. Taste is smoother than most stouts. I’ve had many and this one may be my favorite. Thanks!!!

Bottle. Poured dark brown color with medium to large brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium toasted malt and chocolate aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium toasted sweet malt flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very straightforward stout with the typical bitter bite to it balanced by the malts, a little boring but still a good example of the style.

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Dark brew with on finger of tan head that settles down to a persistent froth. Aroma of roasted (burnt) malts with coffee overtones. Fine taste of burnt malts. coffee, chocolate, a sweet but not cloying finish. Palate is satisfying and good. Very refined and well balanced.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Very dark brown/black pour, quickly dissipating carbonation and a nice light and sweet chocolate chip and vanilla aroma. Flavor is light peat and smoke, some sweet lactose and finishes a little thin. Not bad.
