COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
SEDUCTIVELY SMOOTH Our brewers have poured their hearts and roasted malts into this rich, slightly sweet stout. Luscious notes of coffee and chocolate accent the smooth, creamy mouth feel. We will not apologize for any amorous affairs resulting from the consumption of this beverage

A great session stout. I’d love to have it on nitro. Black under a thin, off white head. Very dry, roasted, coffee aroma. I would by no means call this a sweet stout -- there are very low levels of residual sugars. It is an incredibly dry stout. Very nice flavor -- initially coffee moving into roasted barley. Lingering bitterness. Thin palate as a dry stout should have, but over carbonated.

asheft (2551) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
[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.

Transfer from BA review on 2-19-13- 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.
