Poured from 22 oz. bottle into snifter glass.
A: Pours a dark black with a one finger dark khaki/caramel head. Light cannot pass through this wonderfully looking stout. Great lacing.
S: Instant chocolate hits your nose for a brief second followed by a slightly bitter coffee. The hops come through to enhance the bitterness and tone down the sweetness of the chocolate
T: Bitter coffee upfront with a sweet oat taste through the middle followed by an even sweeter chocolate that hits the back end and stays on the pallet.
M: For a stout it is light but slightly chewy at the beginning. Smooth finish. Goes down VERY easy
O: Great Stout that paired very well with the meat I was having at the time. Take the time to enjoy a few sips before the meal though as this changes the taste slightly and is less bitter up front during the meal.
