100 rating beer for sure. Just try it and tell me this is not good... Aroma of coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, malt, caramel, toffee, vanilla & some fruit, biscuit and nuttiness. The taste of vanilla/chocolate cream note that lingers well into the mid palate, which begins to show more of a spice character - again clove & cinnamon, along with nutmeg & black pepper. Overall this is an awesome stout. Thick, flavorful and fulfilling.
