One of my favorite Stouts because I have been drinking it for so long. Very good for it's smooth quality and chocolate/mocha taste. Great because it's not very heavy and at 5% it turns out to be a really nice ender to a night of good beer drinking. Although this was the beer that turned me on to stouts and porters, I think after trying a large selection, that this particular stout is a bit watery and it's aroma doesn't quite do the drink justice on it's taste. In fact it has an almost porter smell and mouthfeel until you tasted the stout and really get that coffee/mocha taste. Definitely best out of a pint glass if not a snifter, and great mixed with the Black Bear Brewery's Bluesberry Ale

Apparently brewed once upon a time for the close by Bear Brew Pub, this beer was poured on-tap at the Black Bear Brewery. Served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a brown-to-black coloring with ruby highlights and a light tan, frothy head. Decent cling as you drink. Nose of mocha and coffee, blended with a touch of sweet cream. Bitter roasted aftertaste on a thin body. Clean, smooth finish, with a slight roasty, bitter linger. Tasty brew.
