Bottle from Flanagan’s in Appleton. Pours viscous and black, with a thin tan head. Chocolate and sweet (!!!!) malt aroma. Full of chocolate flavor, but not too much. Like most stouts, it became much more interesting and complex as it warmed.
Aroma: bitter coffee, subtle hops. Taste very rich: coffee, chocolate sweetness, decent amount of vanilla, well balanced with some subtle hops. Very tasty indeed. Nice grainy, lingering, slightly bitter aftertaste. MF creamy, no disturbing carbonation. I like this a lot, a very tasty, soft, creamy stout. ARH (1138) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2017 roasted coffee, chocolate, and cherry aroma. roasted coffee flavor with bread crust. thin and smooth with a smokey finish katrinaez (2308) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2017
Not sure if a tap line wasn't cleaned properly, but I get a bunch of cinnamon sugar and raisin aroma and taste. Deep black coloring. Cinnamon raisin toast is what I taste. Medium mouthfeel. Tap Nordcore (1663) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2017
