Very dark beer. Smells roasty, with hints of chocolate. Has a slightly creamy feel and a roasty taste. Not a stout I would rate among my favorites, but it’s not bad either.

Una Stout que és bona, i que si no fos per la baixa graduació seria una Imperial Stout en quant a cos i sabor. Té gust a licor de café i el sabor de les Imperial Stout envellides. Té cos mig/alt. De color negre nit. Fa escuma baixa, amb bombolla petita. Amargor nul·la, és gairebé dolça. Olor a licor de cafè i xocolata. Recomanable.

ghostbeer (213) - Nebraska, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Pitch black and incredible smooth and unctuous. I was drinking this with other stouts so any aromas or nuanced flavors were really lost for me. Disappointing but I would like to try this again on its own.

Ar: Cocoa and light char, a touch of smoke; cherry and blueberry notes, some sweet coffee. Ap: Deep brown-black, opaque; small tan head with low retention, leaves a ring of bubbles and a thin cap of foam with a big middle sud. T: Sweet, cocoa and coffee up front; light herbal bitterness; medium caramel and sweet bread crust; nice toasted malt finish. P: Medium body with medium-high carbonation; finish is moderately dry. O: Excellent sweet stout; nice blend of roast and caramel flavors--very multidimensional--with a well-balanced sweetness.
