This Beer blew me away and stands as my personal favorite stout to date. The flavors are complex, it pours a great milky head, and has the right density and color for a stout. Highly recommend!

Pours a nice black color with some brown highlighting. Rich, creamy tan head. Long lasting and sticky. Very nice.

Nose is also very pleasing, even in a frosty glass. Semi-sweet chocolate, light roast and a touch of yeasty/sourish twang. Very nice, traditional English stout nose.

Good balance of roasty malt and almost a caramel type of sweetness. Very smooth, very creamy, very impressive! My first NOLA brew and I am digging it.
