A dark traditional dry stout with a frothy, tan head and smooth roasted malt flavor. Leaving you with distinct dark chocolate and coffee taste. Big in aroma! Jimmy Carbone's "favorite beer of 2012".

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.
