Pours pitch black. Normal head volume and retention, above normal lacing.

Light, but complex, nose of coffee, roast, cocoa and an underlying honey sweetness.

Medium bodied with a thick smooth body that approaches creamy. Superb carbonation with a nice prickly effervescence from the middle on.

The outstanding flavor profile is intense, complex and superbly balanced. It begins with a blend of flavors that separate into cocoa/roast over a very subtle coffee like aspect. The middle allows the underlying malt base to provide a balancing sweetness, with honey aspects, to a mild roast bitterness. The finish is where this stout really shines as a burst of effervescence separates the flavor components over a rich honey flavored sweetness and leaves you with a amazingly tart like residual that has
notes of spice. A fine beginner stout.

Great tasting beer. Looks, tastes, and feels like a legit stout. The honey added a mild sweetness, maybe a nutty character to the flavor. Enjoyed it.

Just slight hint of the honey with a small chocolate after taste. Fairly easy on the mouth and no real after taste. Would not mind another one of these...

Floral honey notes and rich, sweet chocolate dominate the initial aroma, with roast malt and a slightly acrid/metallic note rounding things out. Nutty, toasted malt and cinnamon add warmth.

Flavor reveals rich chocolate and subtle cinnamon throughout, fairly sweet initially, but fading to roasty bitter malt at the finish. Earthy notes linger in the aftertaste. That metallic character emerges as it warms. Chili heat becomes evident, the more I sip.

The metallic notes detract, but this is still a great dessert beer. On the sweet side, and lacking a bit in body, but love the chocolate and honey sweetness, along with the toasted malt base. The chili heat makes this a great winter brew. A bit of a guilty pleasure.
