This is a meal in a glass. Brewed with 7 different malts and served cask-conditioned, you should be ready for a full onslaught of creamy stout intensity. Broadly in the style of a Foreign Extra Stout, this is our heaviest and most intense year-round offering.

Appearance- Black in color with a three finger tan head produced.

Aroma- Mild aroma consisting of a little bit of roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate.

Taste- Creamy milk chocolate and a hint of some kind of vanilla sweetness are most noticeable at first. Towards the middle a mild burst of roasted malts comes in providing perfect balance to the creamy chocolate sweetness. Finish is a mixture of the roasted malt and chocolate.

Mouthfeel- Medium to full bodied, mild carbonation, creamy in texture, and a good amount of residual malt in the finish.

Overall- This is incredibly well balanced with the chocolate being perfectly sweet and the malt adding just a touch of needed bitterness. Very enjoyable and easy drinking, and definitely worth seeking out.

Poured from a tall boy can into a tulip.

Opaque brownish-black with a 1/2" coffee colored head. Thick lacing. Decent head retention.

The scent is roasty, licorice/anise, dark chocolate. Dark fruit, like prunes. Coffee grounds. Smells legit, spot on for the style.

Similar tastes of roasted malt, baking chocolate, coffee grounds. Bitter licorice. Raisins more than prunes. Very bitter but rich, not imbalanced.

The body comes on lush and creamy, ends bitter and dry, fairly clean.

This stout is legit and true to style. Reminds me of Western European stouts I've had. Noice!

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Black as ever with a thick brown head, good retention and very nice lacing.

Nose: Sweet cocoa, toasted grain, banana, sweet bread and dark fruit, blueberry.

Taste: Smooth and easy to drink. Nice and light, while still maintaining it's "stoutness". Black coffee and cacao powder, touch of cream.

Notes: A fine, very drinkable stout.
