The color is black with a light brown head. The head didn't last long but, left a foamy ring. The smell is of dark roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, dark fruit and caramel. The taste is of dark fruit, bitter chocolate, and licorice. The mouth feel is thick, chewy, velvet, and has nice carbonation. Very good stout!

Had on tap while visiting the hometown. Always a treat!

This pours a thick rich creamy chocolate color with a tight cocoa lace.

It has a smooth chocolate roast aroma to it. Flavor is wonderful—dark cocoa, dark roast—big, rich, and smooth. Great finish. As enjoyable as I remembered!
