From growler, pours deep black with thin to no head, big big caramel, chocolate, coffee and roasted malt aroma. Taste is just as rich and mouthfeel is creamy with just a touch of carb, big coffee and chocolate blends into an oatmeal-like taste that goes into a roasted and nutty finish. Excellent stout, especially with all that taste and not too much alcohol! nimbleprop (8367) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2013
