Beautiful pour, great big cocoa colored head. The smell was pretty muted at first, this aroma was unique because it improved as the head disappeared instead of being most pungent while foaming. Milk chocolate in the nose with some roasted coffee beans and vanilla cookie. The taste improves as it warms but is delicious right out of the cooler. It has a big hop character for a stout and a nice creamy mouthfeel. Cocoa nibs, mild booze, graham and roasted malt in the taste.

Appearance: Medium black with a thick brown head with a faint reddish brown rim left around the edge of my glass
Smell: Earthy malts and aged hops mixed with sweet dark chocolate, caramel, molasses and coffee.
Taste: lightly bitter grainy hops at first, followed by ritch chocolate, coffee, traces of caramel,roasted barley and a citrus blast at the end.
Mouthfeel: Full and filling with an everlasting hoppy aftertaste.
Drinkability: A nice mix of quality , taste , and afordability makes this a constant winner.

Pretty solid stout. Not the most complex, but easy drinking. "West Coast Style" on the label; figured it would mean hop forward, but didn't really taste that.
