3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle from a sampler pack. Pours a black body with an inch of tan head that recedes quickly to a rim of froth. The nose is coffee beans, toffee, tobacco, and subtle hops. Flavors include everything in the aroma plus dark fruits like plum and raisin. Lingering aftertaste of black licorice and more coffee. As I sip on this more, some subtle sweetness is emerging. Medium/full carbonation and full body. This lacks the silky mouthfeel common for the style, but overall, it has good flavor and not overwhelming.

Shared growler poured to snifters, displaying a black/brown hue, with a frothy layer of brownish tan head foam, and waves & thick ribbons of lacing. The nose was malty, moderate roastiness, caramel sweetness, with some interesting hints of dark fruit, and subtle port character. Medium bodied, with carbonation that was probably okay to start, but softened a bit more by transport, the taste was roasted, mocha notes, with a touch of creaminess to the mouthfeel, moderate roasted & earthy bitterness, and an altogether, sessionable nature.

Tasty sweet stout. This ones smells of armoma of nuts and roasted malts. Looks good and medium dark as a pour into a glass. Ok stout but nothing that really stands out to me and gives it that character.
