A decent stout, but this is the junior varsity compared to Mephistopheles. If you want a 6-pack of a drinkable stout rather than going for the gusto, then this is a good choice. But as good as Avery is with their bigger beers, why not gear up for that instead?

Poured midnight black into the old snifter. 1 finger of ecru (the wife's word) head, with very small bubbles. She's a looker. This had some nice mild coffee and chocolate aromas, with a nice, faint tobacco note as well. The tobacco note transferred to the taste, and the slight sweetness, nice malty notes, and slight bitterness were good, but not the complete package. Mouthfeel was rather light for the style, but nothing worrisome. I must admit, this is a good stout. I am a bit partial to bigger stouts myself, and this may have clouded my judgment just a little bit. Solid, but maybe more of a tick than a keeper for me.

Pitch black until disturbed, at which point it goes a little brown. Light tan head. Aroma is coffee and dark bread. Taste is similar with more pronounced coffee and earthy hops. Nice weight
