Rosted coffee aroma and flavor. Pitch black in color. Super light mouthfeel. Tried this one on tap and cask; on cask the flavors pop a bit more at the higher temp and lower carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask: Pours a nearly opaque black with a creamy dark tan head. Aroma of sweet milk chocolate and dark caramel with some roasty coffee character. Body is rich and creamy with good dark malty sweetness and chocolate flavors. Well balanced with bittersweet dark chocolate and flavor hops before a smooth, flavorful, lingering roasty chocolate finish. A very nice stout, especially on cask.
