English Stout |  5.70% ABV

Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our inky-black stout had a smooth, round palate with a dreamlike undercurrent of bittersweet chocolate. This dense liquid-silk summoned hope from hibernation and balanced winter's endless white snows with a rich swirl of creamy black rapture.

Pours black. Aroma is roasty, bitter chocolate, coffee. Taste is biscut, dry and bitter with a light mouthfeel. No booze. Aftertaste is coffee. My guess of 6% abv is close to the actual 5.7, so no surprises there but it is still balanced. Overall, this is very good and an easy drinker.
