22oz bottle poired into a snifter glass at 45F.
Close to black, but more of a dark brown color. Thick tan head that quickly settles to a nice cover.
Nice citrus hops up front. Roasted black malts rounded out with caramel and some vanilla.
More roasty malts and bitter hops. There is also ripe fruits, molasses and a smoke taste. Nothing outstanding here, but a nice hoppy stout.
Fairly dry, similar feel to a big Irish stout. Nice full body and well carbonated.
Well balanced and quaffable. Good pub beer to go with a burger or fish and chips.
