Thick black pour with lots of foam. On the nose, heavy aromas of coffee, milk chocolate and malt. Taste is first rich milk chocolate and caramel before the coffee kicks in, resulting in a slightly bitter, but long, long aftertaste. Full body, soft carbonation. An excellent stout that I would definetely drink again.

Beautifully black, ebony, 2 finger dense creamy, long brown head leaving foggy islands that last really long, sticky lacing. Herbs are 1st in aroma, roasted malt, lots of coffee, later pine, salty licorice, chocolate. Lively and nuanced aroma. Heavy, full feel, velvety soft, full bodied, long finish, nicely roasted to medium bitter, sweet. Excellent, balanced, lively, nuanced, lots of character, good aromas and flavors, looks great, highly recommended!
