This is an American style stout that has sweet malt flavors of caramel and chocolate, complimented by a crisp bitterness produced by roasted barley and American Hops. The complex malt bill of pale and roasted malts result in this well balanced stout that is smooth, rich, dark and delicious! And watch out – ABV 6.8%!

Thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is very similar. The predominant flavor is cocoa powder, with some medium roasted malts also thrown in. Even with all of the malt, the beer is very dry. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bomber sent to me from LSUPT from the One Bottle Need Karma LIF, thanks again man! Finally crackin it open, and damn is it a beauty. Pitch black pour with a coffee khaki head tracking lacing behind in its wake. Chocolate dominated aroma with some kind of bittering dark chocolates present and a touch of a sweet fruit like quality. Same on the tongue with a remarkable drying bitterness in back. Aftertaste is roasty & lingers til the next sip. This stout is pretty much spot on - creamy body, well carbed, chocolate bomb. Only significant critique is that I wish the body was beefed up a bit.

Had this one at the source while visiting New Orleans for Cantillon Zwanze Day! Served from tap into a NOLA shaker. Poured a massively dark red-brown with a three finger tan head that subsided to one finger slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, cream, earth, milk chocolate, earth hop, and roasted malt. The flavor was of sweet malt, milk chocolate, cream, roasted malt, and dark chocolate. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. For the style this one had a lot of the aspects that one would expect with the roastiness and subtle sweetness to go along with it. This made it easy to drink and fairly enjoyable at the same time. I just wish there would have been something else to make this one standout from the other brews from the style. Glad I got to try this one and suggest you do the same if you are a fan of the style.
