Very good thick stout that's got a great mouth feel to it. Pours with a thick lacing and heavy head that is light brown color. Don't live far from this brewery so I stock up on this stuff.

Too much carbonation and hops just unbalance the style. Not enough chocolate or coffee come through

BBD 12/14. Pours dark as a starless night with a massive World Class head, lacing and retention. Nice, but somewhat subtle, nose of sweet dark chocolate with only a hint of roast. Very light medium body with just a touch of creamy texture. Slightly above normal carbonation with some effervescence in the middle and finish. The flavor profile is intense, a bit complex and fairly balanced. It begins with a bitter rush of dark chocolate that fades into coffee notes. The sweet aspects of the nose are not present. In turn, the coffee releases into a mild bitter roast with citric, but not quite rind like, hop bitterness. The finish is somewhat dry and leaves you with a distinctive aftertaste of charred grain. Similar to Bell's Kalamazoo, but a bit more refined.
