This stout is the best I have ever had. It kicks the crap out of guinness, hands down the best beer at Otto's as well. It has a very dry, bitter coffee like flavor and mouthfeel. but very smooth on the back end. I can easily hammer this beer any time of year. If you are in happy valley and you like stout you need to visit Ottos and have one or ten! You wont be disappointed.

Had on tap at the brew pub served in a pint glass.

Appearance – The black as night nitro driven beer forms a beautiful white head which cascades through the dark brew giving a nice, just off white, foam head with very nice retention. A thing of beauty in a beer.

Smell – Roasted malts and dark chocolate are the first to be encountered. While the two dominate the nose, a faint bit of sweetness works its way at the end.

Taste – The flavor of roasted malts give a nice very nutty-toasty taste. The cocoa flavor then develops shortly after, complementing the roasted notes very nicely. The nutty, toasty malt with chocolate overtones then sweetens ever so slightly toward the end of the tasting, with hints of vanilla swirled into the other more dominant flavors. A very nice balance. Nothing overpowers too much, but the important flavors shine at just the right time.

Mouthfeel – Creamy to say the least. The perfectly formulated nitro driven body combined with the wonderfully balanced and non overpowering lighter malt body makes for a very smooth drinking experience. So wonderfully smooth, light and refreshing; the silk of the beer world.

Overall – This is one of the best beers I have ever had and will continue having. I have tasted this many times before and every time I have it I am surprised at how wonderfully creamy, tasty, light and satisfying it is. For anyone out there this is a must try.
