12oz. Picked up in grand rapids. Thicker looking black pour, frothy layer of cream colored head that just barely sticks.

Aroma, good oat, caramel, chocolates. Some roast malt.

Taste, Great chocolate covered nut and oatmeal. Nice toasted/roast maltyness. Dark chocolate, cocoa. Some coffee and light anise in the finish.

In the middle body wise, a food level of carb, not quite creamy. Coating enough but still easy drinking.

Really a solid example of the style.

Serving type: bottle

On tap at Paw Paw brewery. Served in a sampler glass. Pours near-black with a nice tan head and some lacing on the way down. The nose has a nice, rich sweetness along with a bit of roasted malt and mild chocolate. Very nice. The flavor has a nice depth with sweetness that isn’t over the top along with quite a bit of malt flavor. Nice chocolate component. Medium-full body with a nice chewiness. Very nice brew.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a growler into a standard pint glass. I got this in the growlers plus BIF.

Appearance: Pours black with no light coming through at all. There if a half finger of tan head that fades to a layer on top of the pour. Nice looking beer.

Smell: Mildly sweet and quite roasty. Just a bit nutty.

Taste: Very full flavored, roasty stout. Roasty grain dominates. Hints of nuts and coffee. The roast continues throughout the pour and stays through the finish. It's nice to have a well crafted, regular stout.

Mouthfeel: Body is very smooth and on the thick side. There is some tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: A really nice stout. Not a lot of craziness going on, but that's one of the things that made me enjoy it so much. Would definitely have it again.

Serving type: growler
