It's always nice to get a growler of something. The appearance was nice and black with a coffee colored head. The smell was a lot of malt and very sweet. The taste was great with nice notes of the malt and a lot of chocolate flavors in the beginning which then led to a very clean finish. Easy drinking but with a lot of flavor. My favorite part though was the feel of the beer. Not overly thick, but a nice consistency that coated my mouth. I liked it a lot and would definitely recommend.

Serving type: growler
