The beer comes in a black color with a gentle head.

The aroma has roasted malt and sweet chocolate.

The flavor has roasted malt, chocolate, slight licorice. It’s not overpowering and you’ll just that that flavor in the back end.

The body is actually a bit light.

The beer for me is too toned down. I prefer Deschuttes Obsidian Stout with its bigger roasted malt character and deeper flavors. In the end, it’s a well made beer and quite delicious. However, just a good stout.

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

Poured from a 12 oz bottle, viscous jet black with a tan head.

Smell- very nice, vanilla, oak, cocoa, roasted barley

Taste- taste follows with vanilla, oak, touch of anise, cocoa, cola, roasted barley

Feel- fairly light, decent amount of carbonation

A great stout, comparable to a Deschutes Obsidian or SN stout
