dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Aroma of roast coffee with underlying floral hops. Appears an opaque dark-brown-black color with a creamy tan head. Flavor is roasty and a tad burnt, with appropriate residual sweetness, but little to no oatmeal presence. Palate is smooth, creamy and very soft. Overall, a very good sweet stout, and a bit more than the sum of its parts.

Good but not my favorite stout. Has a bit of a sour bite to it. Can't seem to get past the sourness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
