Poured a creamy tar black into a teku glass with a finger of chocolate malt colored foam. Smells of chocolate, light coffee, and sweet malted milk. Taste is delightfully smooth and has hints chocolate with just the right amount of sugary milk. The most surprising thing is the heavy amount of hop bitterness that comes through, but also has an amazingly smooth finish. It has a lighter mouth-feel for a stout while still packing plenty of thick classic stout feel.

Overall it's another great beer by the guys at 18th street. They've only made three varieties to this point all worth trying. As soon as they get their taproom, Northwest Indiana we have another great beer giant to rival FFF. Personally, I can't wait to see what else they come up with.
