3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours nearly black, with a foamy tan head - some intense roast in the nose, with espresso, bittersweet chocolate, sweet cream - medium to light body for the style - the flavor reminds me of some of my early stout and porter experiences when I first got into beer (London Porter, Shakespeare Stout) - quite a bit of chocolate and anise, with moderate roast and mid to low bitterness - lingering cream sweetness in the finish - not as intense as most look for in a stout, but pretty tasty and balanced.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a pint glass.
Color is deep black, slightly brown when held up to the light. Thick brown head, that leaves great lacing.
Aroma is of smoked/roasted malts along with slight grassy hops. Some chocolate as well.
Taste is of smoked almonds. Chocolate flavored. The grassy hops become more present. Finally, a burnt caramel taste is noted.
Mouthfeel is a little bitter at first from the hops, but then it becomes smooth and creamy. Full bodied. Decent amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is a very easy to drink for a stout. I could easily enjoy a few of these. This is a must try if you are into lighter stouts.
