12oz. bottle poured into a Kapok Tree Inn tulip glass.

A - Dark but not quite black. Two finger cream colored head and fine lacing.

S - Roasted malt, coffee milk chocolate

T - Roasty toasty chocolate coffee flavors. Sweeter than dark chocolate but not as creamy sweet as a Hersheys bar. Roasted malts linger.

M - Medium bodied with fairly high carbonation for a stout.

D - More sessionable than the bigger stouts.

Overall an enjoyable brew. Drier than I expected. Will drink again.

dark brown, not black in color with a creamy, beige head that retains a nice coller and leaves some streaks of crusty lace.

Aroma is roasty malts, caramel, chocolate, light coffee notes, and a buttery tart note.

Taste is initially chocolatey with roast malt with some caramel. It gets a bit sweet with creamy lactose and ends with a nip of West Coast hops. Nicely balanced.

Medium body feels thicker due to pinpoint bubbles and slick, creamy texture.
