pretty good stout.The right mix of roastiness with touches of chocolate. Slightly dry finish. Not bitter.

Clear brown with some lacing. Mellow aroma, with the most interesting feature being something that reminded me of a girlfriend I had in high school (her lipstick and hairspray). But the flavor was wonderfully laden with chocolate, plus sufficient roasted notes for complexity. Not super thick in palate but respectable and reasonable for a stout (non-Imperial).

Bottle. Toasty, roasty, toffee. Sorta thin. Not bad, but nothing about this stands out.

12 oz. bottle. very dark pour with a tan head. the head fades to a slight ring as the beer warms for a few minutes in my glass. aroma hints of coffee, chocolate and some vanilla bean. flavors are pretty much the same, but they just dont seem to come together in an even or balanced way.

Bottled
Almost opaque black, not much head. Slightly hoppy aroma with strong milk chocolate presence. Not really strong nose. Chocolaty, medium-bodied, despite of roastiness a bit bland. Roasted aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours a deep black body with thin head. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted coffee. Flavor is bittersweet, some chocolate and a flavor of old burnt coffee. Creamy mouthfeel.

Very dark, almost black in color. Practically no head. Aroma and taste is typical of an oatmeal sweet. High in maltiness and chocolate. Not bad.

Bottle picked up this summer; poured a dark, cola brown with a small to medium light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt,/coffee milk sweetness and hints of chocolate. Just slightly thin on the palate, but the palate was nice overall. Flavor had some light chalkiness in the finish. Flavor was a blend of chocolate, roasted malt, oats and sweetness. Easy drinking and solid brew.
