Nice thick body with nice lacing. Bold, roasty, chocolate, vanilla, malty and just very pleasant to drink. Also ages very well. Have had it fresh and over a year of age.

Poured on tap at Pies and Pints in Waterbury, CT

Appearance - Deep, black motor oil like in color - nice billowing tna head rises up the glass and holds firm. Aroma is of deep molasses, dark chocolate and some coffee notes - very pleasing overall - this one tastes simply perfect! The balance of strong malt elements between the chocolate and coffee notes make this one very nice - I love the balance here - a very good stout from an up and comer in the CT scene - a great job Back East
