a delicious special edition of their tasty midnight marmot stout, packed with chocolate and i suppose some coffee as well, but its the chocolate that really defines it for me. i got some coffee notes out of the dark barley roast in the original, and that element doesnt seem a whole lot more robust here, but the chocolate really is rich and flavorful, a dark silky earthy chocolate without too much sweetness, it meshes into the excellent base beer really well, and this isnt one of those overly desserty stouts you dont want more than a little bit of, its a easy sipper as this sort of thing goes. lots to like about it, including a smooth frothy body which is the perfect vehicle for these flavors. i also am stoked on some of the nuance, cola or dr pepper character in the middle, a light spiciness with the cocoa, and still all the dark bitter roasted goodness from the grain. a little espresso crema oily thing suggests some coffee in the mix as well, and the finishing bitterness does too. warms up well, full of flavor, very wintery, very good. these guys arent getting enough credit for the excellent beers they brew in here, always a pleasure to visit and try whatever is new. this is a great variant of the classic!
