Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a black, oil spill color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of roasted malts, light chocolate. Taste is coffee, roasted malts, mild hints of chocolate, alcohol is well hidden. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

This is a really nice stout. It fits the traditional style very well without some of the metallic aftertaste that many stouts tend to have. This one didn't have a lot of balance due to the intense roastiness of the malts, but overall it was very enjoyable.

Strong chocolate / roasted coffee flavor. Very dry with intense hop aftertaste. I like having it with some strong aged cheese or with chocolate based desserts

Just didn't like the hop profile in this stout. Just seemed unbalanced. Way too hoppy and it overwhelmed what smelled like a decent chocolate quality.
