Ok I admit it. I have a sweet tooth and this is a tasty sweet stout. Not much head on my pour but rich and thick silky smooth mouth feel. Roasted coffee, chocolate but not a burnt taste or astringent. Very easy to drink. I would use this as an introduction to the dark side for non stout lovers. If you want sweet, rich and roasted this is it.

Taste like a Guinness but maybe a bit more chocolatey/milky tasting.
