Style: American Stout

Notes / Commercial Description:
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%!

Pours a dark black color with a medium tan head that hangs around for a little while before slowly subsiding and leaving a moderate amount of sticky lacing.

Nice aroma of roasted malt and chocolate upfront with a hint of coffee in the background.

Taste starts off with strong notes of chocolate upfront, followed by lighter notes of roasted malt, caramel and some licorice and coffee. A light hop presence shows up near the end and lingers into the finish. A slight alcohol presence can be detected but is fairly subtle overall.

Medium body with medium carbonation. Now NOLA has had some nice offerings so far but personally, this may be their best one yet. Rich and full flavored all around, and despite having the highest ABV, this is just as easily drinkable as anything else in the NOLA lineup. Will be having this one often.

Not sure how long the stout will be around but with any luck, past trends will continue and this won't be "seasonal" for very long...
