Not usually a fan if stouts but this one I really like. Really chocolatey and burnt coffee tasting. Pours nice and dark an goes down smooth. All stout drinkers need to try this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mep3222 (743) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Aroma of roasted malt and a spiciness, almost cinnamon, but it is mild spiciness. Taste is roasted malt with a very nice full flavored body. Dry finish. This one almost feels like an imperial stout with how full flavored it is. Really a great stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a can into a pint glass. The pour is a dark brown with light brown tint head. There’s a lot of chocolate notes with a medium to full body and a thick texture. I like it.

monk191 (1219) - California, USA - JAN 28, 2015
A nice stout overall. Pours a deep thick black with a thick tan head. Smells of cinnamon, vanilla and coffee. Taste is similar, lots of cinnamon, some vanilla throughout, and some slightly butter coffee in the finish. Had in the bottle.
