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.

A great beer for a nice price and availability. Pours a nice black with a coffee colored head that lasts for a while. The smell was full of malt and sweet scents. The taste was great, hints of dark chocolate and almost fruity notes on the end. The mouthfeel was nice as well. Overall I would recommend for stout lovers as a nice beer to have in between the harder to find and more expensive stouts.
