Aroma: very roasty and a little boozy; good; Appearance: pitch black with thin off white head that disappears almost immediately; Taste: follows nose with a little additional bitterness; Palate: heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: not bad. Not the first stout I’d choose, but decent.

Dark amber pour, no head. Nose is coffee, chocolate, cherries, alcohol. Bittersweet. Middle is fudge brownies (that’s what I taste!) with some cinnamon. Finish is earthy malt with a nice hop bite. Stay with this one, it is delicious.
