Solid brew, no complaints about this one. It didn't blow me away, but good all around and a good rep for the style. Chocolate and coffee on the nose, chocolate and coffee going down. Nice black pour and creamy enough. Will definitely drink again and will probably recommend it as a starting point to the style if asked.

Reasonably priced double chocolate stout, always makes me feel good as it is accessible where I'm at.

February 8, 2015

500 ml bottle, tulip

A – Midnight black, topped with a couple inches of light tan foam, with fairly long retention.

S – Sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, a very light touch of coffee. Light earthy hop aroma with some mild bitterness on the nose. Perhaps a touch of bitter, roasty malt, but balance is toward sweet chocolate.

T – Flavor is also sweet milk chocolate with a hint of coffee, vanilla, and honey. Hop flavor is moderate, again earthy and slightly tropical, with a moderate-high level of hop bitterness.

M – Moderate-low carbonation with mild residual sweetness, the moderate-high bitterness creating balance. Silky smoothness from the oats.

O – One of the two beers (Bourbon County Stout being the other) that led me down the path to embracing and appreciating craft beer, this is still my favorite sweet/milk stout. So easy to drink, yet fairly complex, rewarding at different layers.
