this is a terrific stout. a rich aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and toffee. The first flavor is a nice rich coffee combined with unsweetened chocolate followed by a nice slightly yeasted roasted malt taste that stays with you long after you swallow. Rich, smooth, thick mouthfeel. Leaves a velvety feel on the tongue.

Bottle is Best by 5/19/13. Poured into a small wine glass.

O – An above average stout. A beer that required an entire 12oz for me to recognized as a beer worthy of recognition.

A –Poured black, nice tan 2-finger smooth head, nice lacing, nicely carbonated.

S – Coffee, roasted malt, a slight floral and spicey aroma.

T – Roasted malt, expresso/coffee, some mild sweetness, bitterness in the finish.

MF – Smooth.
