Another stout that pours black and brown with a thin tan head on the top; around 1/3", hits with more black than brown.

Aroma was chocolate malt and that is about the story.

Taste was more roasted malt, smoothed out slappy hours, hides alcohol pretty well considering its strength. Not sweet. Chewy. Warmth brings toffee and alcohol, caramel. Above average carbonation keeps the heft out the way.

Very nice black coffee color. Pours with a very minimal head which dissipates almost instantly leaving no lacing. Below average carbonation.

Distinct coffee notes. No hop presence in the taste that I discerned. It works. One of the better tasting stouts I've had in a while. I'll definitely purchase again.

This is my favorite beer that is available year round. I have only tasted a few beers that are better and one of them is the barrel aged version. This beer makes me smile.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a thin tan head that dies down somewhat fast and leaves next to no lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and some sweet caramel/toffee.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some roasted malts upfront, light coffee, sweet chocolate, vanilla, caramel, toffee and faint dark fruit.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a decent overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.

Serving type: can
