Bottled. Pours a very dark creamy brown with a dark tan head, poor retention. The aroma is also creamy, with roasty notes too. The taste is initially bitter with malt, then the cream evens it out. Finished with coffee malt, overall pretty full bodied, one of the better twisted pine beers.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle had while visiting family in Boulder, Co. Pours black with about a finger of mocha head. Aroma is typical stout, but with a good deal more cocoa aroma. Taste is roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, some licorice, and a nice hop punch at the end. Light and silky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good sweet stout, but not one that stands out. Seems to be a local favorite for a good reason.
