The last beer of the night delivered the experience I was looking for all evening. A filling stout with a sweet edge it is like a bigger bolder version of Guinness done in house. Maybe I should have just skipped the hop driven taps completely.
Aroma / Appearance - A pour the color of deep black coffee sticks to the rim of the glass. Soft mocha head adds a nice edge. Walnuts, almonds, coffee, and black earthy malts provide a smoky presence of a dark alley at night.
Flavor / Palate - Sweet licorice, malts, coffee, and other flavors provide a dry texture. The profile is decent but what makes this work are some of the intangibles. A finish lasts quite a while but this is still easy to drink. Whether you take your time or rush through the pint you’ll experience a well crafted release.
Roasted aroma with coffee, cocoa & chocolate. Full black with small creamy long lasting brown head. Medium sweet taste with a light bitterness. Medium body, oily texture & average carbonation. Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Pours a deep dark brown color with aroma of roasted barley. Taste is of mild coffee with chocolate notes. You can also taste the roasted barley after the swallow. A decent stout, especially for a restaurant craft. TheJvd (1321) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2013
