Pours a beautiful opaque black with nitro cascade to a thick coffee cream head. Aroma is chocolate, roast malt, and some coffee. Taste follows with chocolate, coffee, and roast throughout. Mouthfeel is thin for a stout. Overall, a not bad and reminiscent of Guinness.

Part of the classic flight. Nice dark color with thick, creamy mocha head. Smooth, thin feel. Bitter cocoa aroma, Roast coffee grounds in the taste. Not bad, not excellent, just okay.

Probably one of the mildest blandest stouts I have ever had. Not bad, it was still enjoyable, but it isn't going to blow any taste buds away.

Would Drink Again: No
