Really a great balanced american stout that surprised me. Could see myself enjoying several. Balanced with all the great really roasty flavors you'd expect with chocolate and hops. Good stuff.

Taste is dry chocolate and roasted malt. There is some baker's cocoa in there as well with a touch of smoke. A good beer, especially for the style. One I could have several glasses of.

Pours out pitch black with a khaki head. SMells of big roasted malt and chocolate. Tastes of chocolate, berries, coffee. There's some roasted bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, and chewy. This is a solid stout that drinks like a full flavored imperial stout.
