Poured into a pint glass, the appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a cap of a little white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Some stringy yet messy lace. The aroma had a good amount of dark chocolate with some roasted malt and coffee. Slight smokiness. The flavor takes the previously mentioned aromas to blend nicely. Some dark fruits come in to excite my tastebuds. A touch of breadiness. Quick semi-sweet aftertaste with a crisp sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about medium bodied with a fair sessionable sort of smooth feel rolling all around. Low carbonation, but I didn’t mind. ABV felt fine. Overall, a pretty nice sweet stout worthy of coming back to.

On tap at the Village Tavern in Geneseo, NY.

Pours dark brown, almost black. One inch head, with good sheets of lacing down the glass, white and foamy.

Aromas include chocolate, heavy roasted malt, and some coffee.

The taste is great- smooth and a bit buttery, with lots of dark chocolate, and smoky roasted malt. I taste some coffee grounds as well.

The beer is very dry, almost ashy. Creamy mouthfeel, very drinkable. Medium bodied.

A great English stout from Middle Ages, I would've expected them to knock this style out of the park.
