On tap in Philly. Nice chocolatey, roasty, relatively light, yet flavorful stout. I would definitely have this again. I was pleasantly surprised, as this is incredibly drinkable with plenty of smooth flavor.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured black, nice tan head but no real lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, some chocolate and a bit of coffee. Taste is mostly chocolate and roasted notes, some bitterness to it. Nice and solid, very enjoyable.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Notes of malt, toast and coffee on the nose. Appearance is a dark brown with a tan head. Flavor tastes like day old coffee with hints of chocolate in the background. The roast character is high. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with medium carbonation. Overall, it's a poorly brewed beer. I would not buy this beer again.

[on tap at Local, PHI airport]
Light coffee aroma with faint chocolate, licorice, and red fruit notes. Opaque black with clear, ruby highlights under an eternal, light brown, lacy flannel blanket. Sweet, sour and lightly bitter mocha flavour with faint red fruit accents. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth.

On nitro, thick luscious off white/light tan head, crisp bite, kinda surprising for a stout, nice alcohol warmth behind. Will be looking for this again.

Served on tap in a 10 oz pint glass
Appearance – The brew is served a deep black color with a one finger tan colored head. The head fades rather fast to leave only moderate level of lacing.
Smell-The aroma is heaviest of chocolate and roasted malt mixed with notes of espresso and a small amount of sea smell.
Taste – The taste begins quite heavy of a roasted malt, some lighter flavors of coffee, and a sweetness of caramel. The coffee grows stronger as the taste advances with some notes of a chocolate sweetness also coming to the tongue. Some lighter earthy hop flavors come to the tongue more at the end of the taste along with a light touch of a mineral and salt sea like taste. With the increase in the chocolate flavors at the end of the taste a rather pleasant bitter sweet, roasted and dark flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer was on the creamier and thicker side, especially for a bee of only 5.5 % abv with a carbonation level that was rather average. Both were nice for the drinkability as well as the darker flavors of the brew and made for a nice feel overall.
Overall- A rather tasty, easy drinking, and fairly balanced stout. Well worth a try if you get the chance.
