Notes/Commercial Description:
Jet-black in color, this monster smells of coffee and chocolate. The taste is much of the same, with hints of creamy toffee and roasted malt. Smooth and delicious, this medium bodied ale is all about the malts, but has enough hop bitterness to be balanced.

Pours dark brown with a thin light brown head. Smells of roasted malts, chocolate and maybe a touch of cedar. Tastes very malty up front, roast, chocolate, a little burnt/ash. Definite medium body with creamy texture, tastes quite a bit like a milk stout. Nice malty aftertaste with very light hop bitterness. Excellent brew.

Best stout I've ever tried. Is it too sweet for people? It's like a desert beer.

Figured out I'm not a fan of this beer. I think it's that it's not my face style though.

One of the best stouts I've had, and in a can, no less! Full of flavor, coffee, chocolate, nightcap bliss. Drink one or two of these before bed and snoooooooze.
