Definitely a great go to stout. Not going to blow your socks off but it's a must have in your fridge if your a stout drinker like I am.

This stout will make your poo dark.

Very dark coffee/ chocolatey bitter. A tad higher ABV for Deschutes mass-markteted brews. If you like Guiness, this may be a bit too dark and rough. Lacks the levity and smoothness.

Not bad, but not something worth discussing. Why am I here then? Oh yeah, because I'm drinking it now and was looking up my next serving, Sprecher's Double IPA (Oh boy, I don't like the looks of those reviews. Here I thought I was getting a bargain finding a few of these in the $9.99 build your own craft 6-er.)

Happy Thanksgiving.
