Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A nice styrofoam like looking head, three fingers tall with lots of staying power and a light cocoa cream faint tan color, that clumps and hangs. Body is a very dark dark walnut brown, with a good ability to see some fast rising plentiful carbonation if you look closely.
Nose brings a nice powdery whiff of dark chocolate, but it's fleeting and gives way more to a real nice light roasty malt grain. Good husky big thick grain quality, with a nice mixing chocolate angle. Basic, not varied, but simple and solid.
Palate even for a light stout comes off quite wet still, really doesn't coat well. Grainy tasting finish mixing with a light bitterness of chocolate. No sweetness. Roast character is more akin to a light coffee but with no cream action. Good roast quality with a matching chocolate bitterness.
Overall a nice light chocolate stout, not bad, kind of interesting. I could have this again.
