Picked up a bottle from February while in Portland. Really excited to try anything from Firestone Walker. Good Stout. Pretty malty brew. Catch a hint of coffee. Pours super dark and thick with a good head. Could drink this on a regular basis.

Wife's Review: "Yum! I like it a lot. Great with chocolate."
