Poured from a growler (awesome logo for a fly fisherman) into a paper cup at deer camp. Not ideal, but I had to try this one.

A: Dark roasty brownish black in appearance with fairly decent head.

S: Mild hints of coffee and chocolate.

T: Fairly well balanced stout with a slight coffee aftertaste.

M: A little light for my tastes.

O: A very serviceable stout. I'm going to have to make my way to RBC and sample some more of their offerings.
