A - Served a dark black color with a hint of brown and a finger of chocolate colored head. The head fades down slowly leaving behind some good lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of roasted and burnt chocolate malts with a touch of coffee and sweetness.
T - Starts off with some roasted and burnt chocolate malts and a touch of sweetness. Through the middle, some earthy hop flavors come through. The finish is a mix of burnt bitter chocolate malts with a bit of sweetness.
M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and a touch creamy with a dry finish.
D - Very drinkable. Good roasted and burnt flavors with overall good balance. Nice dry finish. slowrunner77 (11938) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2014
"well rounded stout that borders on an american imperial. flavorful and aromatic, with lots of roasted coffee and a decent share of bitter hops. a solid entry." joet (2604) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - JUL 3, 2001
