I think this beer is certainly a good beer. Every time I go to the Mystic Brewery this beer is always brewed the best. It has a nice dark look to it with a bit of a chocolate taste to it. A stout that is just right as far as alcohol percentage. Must try if you like Stout beer. CHEERS!!!

Smell: dark fruit, pumpernickel bread, chocolate and light char

Taste: dark fruit, pumpernickel bread, chocolate and light char
