Pours a rich opaque with a thin-lacing, frothy light brown head. Aroma of roasty malt and bittersweet dark chocolate. Body starts with a mildly sweet dark maltiness a touch of resiny hop bitterness and a smooth roasty dark chocolate finish A nicely-balanced, true to style sweet stout. Thanks to tever for the bottle!

Very aromatic. Roasted malt and lots of smooth chocolate. Deep black with a fluffed up mocha head. The fore is as roasty as you will find switching to toasty bread crust and mild coffee and toast toward the finish.
