Pours pitch black in color with a nice caramel head. Notes of roasted malts and chocolate on the nose. Upon tasting, you get the same chocolate and roasted malts. Good local stout.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass.
Looks good. Sweet aroma possibly molasses mixed with chocolate.
The taste is alright with a bit of an alcohol after taste.
I'm glad I tried it but wouldn't seek it out again. Cheers!

22 oz bottle poured an opaque, black body.
Feel: full, creamy smpoth body; light carbonation.

FLAVOR: Average intensity for style. Ample dark roasted malts with minimal smokiness and moderate. Some light burnt toast in the aftertaste. Lightly bitter. Good balance.
