11.2 oz bottle
Label has a man laughing and holding a glass of beer.
Pours a nice head that falls into a thin layer and a nice lacing.
Smell is very nice: dark, coffee flavors and dark fruit undertones with some spicyness.
Taste is very smooth and refreshing, it doesn’t have the hard coffee flavors of a regular stout, but it has different flavors of nutmeg and dark fruit tones that are very good. It also has a strong pepper flavor due the higher alcohol content.
Mouthfeel is very enjoyable and smooth. It floats down my throat very nicely.
I really enjoyed this stout and without a doubt will have another one.

On tap at the Shaper Edge. Pours a wonderful dark reddish brown with a nice light brown head. The aroma is a sweet fruity mix with some burnt malts. The taste is yeast, a semi-sweet slightly burnt malt, some dark fruit, some alcohol warmth and a tiny bitter finish. What a good drink! More Belgian stouts please.
