Pours black, absolutely no light is going through that. head sticks around but not for long. Nutty, chocolatey coffee malty nose. very smooth, with a slight frizante. the bitterness kicks in after your palate is reminded of the nose. and lingers. pretty good.

alberti92 (159) - - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours pitch black with a thin tan head with low carbonation and a silky light body. Aroma is dominantly chocolate and mocha with a slight coffee undertone. Also in the aroma there are some fruits particularly rockmelon. Taste is slightly smokey with coffee and chocolate. The aroma is way more inviting than the taste but for a sessionable stout this was pretty good.
