4.24/5  rDev -1.6%

Poured from 12 oz into tulip glass

A- jet black with no head, even poured aggressively.

S- tons of chocolate followed by roasted notes. It all pinnacles up to some dark fruits such as dates and figs.

T - doesn't follow the nose as much as I expected. Much more dark fruit than anything else. There are subtle dark chcolate in behind the fruits and a very slight roastedness that finisbes the beer. It instantly dries the mouth after the swallow too.

M- thick and heavy, just like I like my stouts. Not overly bitter or harsh. Just right on the mouthfeel.

O- a good stout, was hoping for more of the chocolate and roast to be more prominent in the taste but I will definitely pick these up again.
