The best Rockaway beer I've had.

The beer, despite it's lower ABV, has the exact notes for a stout in its style. A loving medium mouthfeel. A deep roasted flavor of dark chocolate, bitter coffee, a touch of caramel sweetness.

I recommend having it on CO2 (regular) tap over nitrogen.

I would enjoy to see this canned over their ESB.

32 oz growler purchased from the brewery. Enjoyed in the parking lot before a Red Bulls game.

Pours opaque black with a large tan head. Huge coffee and chocolate aroma that just makes you want to keep taking another whiff. Flavor is full of roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate with a bitter finish. Medium to full bodied yet very drinkable.

Really enjoyable, possibly the best out of the 4 or 5 beers I've tried from Rockaway. I also sampled it on nitro at the brewery which was great as well, but they do not do nitro growler fills due to the low carbonation.
