4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 ounce bottle, best before 240916. Served in a Great Lakes snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells like chocolate, cream, vanilla, and coffee. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also the addition of some nuts and dried/candied fruit. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s creamy and a bit coating with a moderate amount of carbonation. I think it’s a good stout, I’d like to try this one again in the future. Recommended to anyone who’s a fan of sweeter tasting stouts. $7.25 a bottle.
