4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft, as a stout this one is a stand out. Pours a traditional deep brown to black, thick rocky off white head. Inviting aroma of dark chocolate and vanilla, some butterscotch. Taste is very much the dark chocolate up front. Middle of the mouth comes the vanilla and chocolate cream and finishes smooth. Really a triumph of brewing a bold beer without a bold abv.
