Growler share.
We both poured into mugs.
The appearance was a fairly thick dark brown color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a fairly decent pace. Some light messy lace ran here and there.
The aroma played with a huge roasted coffee beans and a nice smooth clean caramel/toffee maltiness a bit bigger than expected for an American stout. I didn't mind for me, though. Some milk chocolate at the very end.
The flavor was moderately roasty with a sturdy sweetness. Some bitterness came in stealthily. Light roasty to malty aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt on par. Mainly a roasty sort of finish.
Overall, it's a decent American stout. Though the caramel/toffee maltiness isn't distracting to me, it was a bit different.

One of the more drinkable stouts I've tried this summer. Not super heavy but nice malt and caramel on the back end. Highly recommended.

This pours a very dark brown and has a moderately thick head. Roasty aromas toast and a bit of caramel. Malty roasted flavors with a nice creamy mouthfeel.
