From a 12 oz bottle in a snifter via Savor Growl in Newtown. This rather
nice stout pours a deep muddy blackish brown with a nice head of light tan
foam that dissipates to a thick ring and thin layer with excellent lacing. Nose
of rich coffee, moderately heavy char, and mild cream notes. Flavors exceed the
nose with robust coffee notes swimming in char and dark bakers chocolate with
a moderate sweetness from lactose sugars. Some caramel malts appear with
warmth and a zesty hop note fills in the gaps on the finish to keep things in balance.
Nice mouth feel; medium carbonation, full body, and a roasted finish.

This is a mighty fine SOLID offering from a newer brewer in these parts.

Cheers

Very dark draft with a beautiful tan head. Strong aroma of burnt toast and dark chocolate. A slightly sweet finish. A delicious refreshment.

Classic appearance and pour for the style, one finger tan head with a pitch black body. The aroma is a HUGE punch of roasted coffee bitterness, with the emphasis on bitter. Burnt toast, dark unsweetened chocolate... Heavenly. Taste follows the nose, but with a slight sweetness to balance out the bitterness of everything else. The stout itself is very full-bodied for a 5.3% beer, almost like the consistency of milk itself. Overall a fantastic representation of the style.

12 oz

Pours jet opaque black, light tan head dissipates to nothing.

Aroma of coffee beans, toast, cocoa, and earthy undertones.

Flavor is of cocoa, coffee bean, lactose, roast and biscuit.

Medium to full body with a light tingle of carbonation on the tongue.

Tasty milk stout with some good flavor and body at a drinkable abv. Worth a try, very enjoyable.

Served on draft at Aubrey's Knoxville Strawberry Plains. This one leans heavy toward the coffee side. Not sure if there is coffee in this one but it is deeply ingrained in this one. Coffee aromas and full coffee flavor. Well balanced and an easy drinker. Highly enjoyable.
