Everettm (81) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Jet black with the smallest of tan lacing. Mild aroma, mainly coffee, but with small amounts of liquorice and roasted malt. Medium body, certainly not full, with slightly to much carbonation. Good balance of coffee and roasted malt flavour with a hint of roasted nuts. Dry almost tart finish that carries Arabica coffee notes.

mcclainc50 (172) - New York, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Pours a dark brown thick fluffy head with light lacing. Aromas of licorice and coffee. Flavors of burnt coffee and licorice, very little carbonation. Easy drinking beer for a stout, light mouthfeel and pleasant aftertaste. Almost seems like they went for a session stout, if you have a long day of drinking and love stouts this is worth a shot.
