An inital nose of caramel and coffee. Upon a taste the beer gives a deep rich flavor with coffee, caramel and a slight hint of hops and then yields to a cocoa finish. Excellent stout

Wonderful aroma of rich malts. Pours dark brown with lots of tan head. Smokey taste upfront with a thick mouthfeel. Finishes with the standard malts of a stout. Some bitter tobacco taste. Well done. Bottle.
