Pours a deep dark muddy brown bordering black. It has caramel brown head.

A nice hit of roasted malt with caramel and coffee notes.

Taste is rich malt like a rich dark bread. Notes of coffee and caramel some herbal hops.

Now that was a delicious stout. Had it on tap at Franky and Johnny's in new orleans. Chocolate, some alcohol, cocoa powder. Incredible stout and incredible crawfish to go with it.

It pours a deep black colour with a thin tan head that turns into a narrow laching. The smell is of chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is very rich malty flavor, I would call it a rich deep flavor. Overall a strong flavored stout.

Here we go #600. Drinking this bad boy out a 16 oz can. Sorry no glass to pour it in. This is a very classic high ABV stout with alot of licorice in the front end followed by some great roasted malt. Silky smooth mouthfeel throughout with a nice weighty density. Finish is as tasty as the upfront. A winner without a doubt.
