Pours a nice dark "stout brown" with with a dark khaki head that fades quickly.

Nose is light fruity chocolate and light roasted grains with some almost Belgian ester character. Light nose but pleasant and inviting.

Mouthfeel is medium to full with a nice creamy texture and character. Nicely carbonated and pleasing in the most.

Flavor profile is the currently popular "hoppy" malty stout. Interestingly, while I generally don't favor that profile, this one really works and is integrated and balanced. Lots of big bitter hops but comes off more as a big bitter coffee, bitter chocolate character. Yet, hopheads will still like it and call it "hoppy." Malt tones, coffee, burnt grain and chocolate and malt tones are all in the flavor profile but well integrated, balanced and well presented. I keep going back to the glass for more, which is a pretty good test.

Finish is a relatively long lasting bitter hop; bitter coffee and bitter dark chocolate. One of the better "new style" stouts tasted recently in my opinion.
