look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

17 oz bottle.

Pours jet black, thin tan film dissipates to a lacing.

Smells of rich milk chocolate and roasted coffee, some brown sugar and vanilla in there as well. Perhaps a bit of hazelnut.

Flavor is of chocolate, hazelnut, fig, toffee, vanilla, brown sugar, and dry biscuit.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A pretty good stout with nice flavor and aroma in a lower-abv package. Very enjoyable and worth trying.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a very dark brown, nearly black. Medium mocha colored creamy head. Edges are medium brown/reddish when held to the light

S: Roasty malt, chocolate, vanilla and coffee

T: A nice dose of maltiness. The malt and chocolate dominate. Vanilla provides good balance to the malt

M: Medium bodied, maybe a touch to much carbonation, wish I was a tad creamier
