Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours dark brown, essentially no light passes through, with a proper frothy deep brown head that laces well.

S: Roasted malt, a touch of dark fruit, some bittersweet chocolate, and very light coffee.

T: Coffee and bittersweet chocolate from the roasted malt up front, well balanced sweetness and bitterness, some dark fruit maybe plum and cherry, a bit earthy with a touch of pine, with a light smoke note and some bitterness on the finish.

M: More towards the heavier side of medium body, moderate carbonation, almost creamy.

O: Solid bold stout, though I wish it was a skoche less bitter and the chocolate and coffee notes were a bit more dominant. Still a very good brew.
