Poured from 12 oz bottle into willy glass.

Nearly pure black with very little head despite a fairly aggressive pour.

Smells initially of iced coffee followed by roasted malt.

Taste is also of iced coffee followed by caramel, roast malt, brown sugar and a nicely balanced bitterness.

Fairly viscous and slightly sweet with very low carbonation. Acts more like a sipper, even though its not particularly high in alcohol.

Overall, I really liked this stout. Nicely balanced flavor and attenuation. Very enjoyable.

decent beer. A light stout with a beautiful color and ample head. The bitterness and sweetness do blend together weel to give a nice balanced flavor. Overall, not as strong as I expected band not one of my favorites from this brewery
