Pours seal brown with a healthy half-inch of coarse, semi-rocky mocha colored foam. The retention of the head is highly respectable. Thick bands of lacing remain caked to the glass as the beer recedes. The aroma smells of bright, resinous hops with some roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and lactose.

Flavor is balanced to semi-sweet on the front end, allowing mild lactose, chocolate, and roasted malt to show their presence before being usurped by piney hops and charred coffee beans on the back end. A nice cocoa character reemerges in the finish as well once the bitterness subsides. It's a rather intriguing evolution on the palate, as the progression from neutral fore to astringent middle to complex, tasteful finish is consistent and pronounced. It's almost as if it refuses to reveal itself until it leaves the tongue. The mouthfeel is smooth, slightly sticky, and well suited to the style.

Overall, this is an engaging and flavorful stout that features a little something for everyone. Stout fans will appreciate the roasted chocolate/coffee flavors, while hop-heads can enjoy a bitter kick as well. If you're a fan of both sides of the spectrum, then this brew should be especially delightful.

Such a nice, smooth, rich beer. Notes of cocoa, vanilla, cream coffee. A hint of roast, but soft, smooth roast character. So delicious!

Beautiful black/brown with thick foamy brown head.

Smell is semi-sour, hoppy, coffee chocolate - simply put - very weird and not integrated. Does not invite a taste.

Taste is hoppy sweet chocolate that is not integrated and finish is a simple bitter. Not one of the most pleasant

Pours black with a dark tan head.
Nose shows chocolate, burnt chocolate cake, soft spicy hops and sultanas.
Decadent flavours. Lots of roasted malt, some dark chocolate, soft lactose sweetness underneath. The booze is a bit aggressive in the finish especially when accompanied by the full-on roasty and hoppy bitterness.
Nice creamy carbonation and syrupy body.
