Pour- Dark dark brown. a bit of light gets through at the edges. The main body is opaque. No real head but leaves a viscosity film on the glass.
Aroma Straight up roast malts mostly,also doing some dark fruits and molasses.
Taste The coffee,dark fruits,roasty/smoky grains and malts and dark brown sugar all do their show in a nice harmony. started this off a bit cold and it has a very solid flavor profile,the body is a bit wet/thin relative to heavier stouts but not bad for an Irish. It gains a little body as it warms. Good balance of Malt-hop-sweet-bitter. Second pour it tries to do a beer head,and gives up. There's a caramel up front that's not evident when colder,then the coffee flavors take over. warmer brings a little more complexity but this does well chilled as a summer stout too.
Mouth Not a THICK stout really but as it warms it gets a bit of sticky syrup action that add to the heft. The aftertaste is quite clean without overdoing the espresso aftertaste. Carbonation is there but not very obvious. It's not a genre that is supposed to be too thick,and it is a bit wet. That's good for a all-round.
Drinkability, Pretty good. The basic flavor balance is on the money. The money,in this case,is reasonable. In no way "hard to finish" and not boozy. Good wide temp range,making for a nice Year Round.

This pours a dark brown/black color with a decent, foamy head. The aroma is filled with cocoa, coffee, and toasted malts. The flavor is well-balanced and smooth. It’s a stout that isn’t too heavy or too light. Smooth malts and cocoa are very evident. This finishes a with a bit of chalky, malt after taste.
