Pours a deep brown that settles in the glass black. Left a inch tall tan head that stuck around for a long while, left a lot of lacing behind.

Smells of oats and malts, the scent seems somehow sweet.

Tastes of dark roasted oats, takes on a hint of coffee. Slight bitter end.

This is very smooth, full-bodied, medium carbonation.

I was lucky enough to get this bottle in a mixed case from a holiday club.

Pours a nice thick black, a thin layer of head that disappears quickly. There is good lacing that sticks to the side of the snifter.

The notes in the nose are very sweet. Chocolate and coffee, but something else that is almost fruity.

The only word to describe this stout is sweet. Sweet from the first sip, all the way through the finish. The smell I was getting in the nose was oranges, sweet like clementines with no bitterness. And of course, chocolate and roasted coffee. There isn’t very much carbonation, has a mouthfeel that’s the same, slick but not watery; I would actually describe it as soft.

Great stout. For me, not enough bitterness to balance the sweetness, but definitely something I would like to have again.
