Pitch black body yields foamy espresso head. Sticky beads of lace adorn my teku. Gorgeous!
Rich, yet dry, coffee-infused roasty malt aroma. Taste opens up with espresso and boozy chocolate malt, turns sweet briefly before finishing dry. In short: Wow! This is excellent.
It isn't often I'm this impressed by a stout, but Ballistic Stout is deserving.

Thanks for the share Matt. This porter was bold and creamy with lots of caramel and coffee finishing with a dark chocolate kiss. VERY drinkable at 10% so watch out!
