I first smelled this stout and I got nothing but chocolate. And then I took my first sip and not a lot of chocolate. Then after that all I got was raisins and dates and dark fruits. To me this stout is ok...... I won't be running out to get more anytime soon.

Decent stout, very thin, taste pretty good more chocolate not so much coffee note. Worth a try but there are better options in my opinion.

Very dark, but not overdone. Really enjoyable flavor.

Unexpectedly quickly vanishing head. Nice aroma (and aggresive body) of coffee and seasalt. Much more acidic taste than anticipated, with a dark roasted bean aftertaste.
