I'll start off by saying that I am a huge fan of super dark beers, and that I know that it is not everyone's favorite type. That being said, this is one of my favorites. Especially for a beer that is easy to acquire year round here in CT. The pour is great with pitch black liquid and a nice brown head. The profiles of coffee and dark chocolate are very strong and give a great aftertaste. I love pairing this beer with red meats, although I drink this alone quite a bit. North Coast is a great brewery with an eclectic selection but this will probably remain as my favorite of theirs for some time.

Picked up a growler of this from State Line liquors in Elkton MD.

A: Beautiful dark motor oil black with a small creamy brown head

S: Malt, chocolate, oats, dark fruits, alcohol

T: This stuff is almost perfect. Creamy and smooth chocolate on the front and finishes with some bitterness and a hint of the alcohol.

M: I don't know if it's because it was from a growler but very little carbonation. Super thick the way a good stout should be.

O: An amazing stout for the price.
