This is probably the best stout I have had in a long time. I rate this to be perfect because it is so much derserved to be. It's not too strong and it's real creamy. Rich in flavors of chocolate andbold dark stout like flavor. I have not seen or tasted a beer like this in a long time. My second choice to this would be Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale.
