Notes / Commercial Description:
Emerging from the deepest shades of darkness, a rolling crescendo of flavors burst forth from this robust stout.

Nothing special here. Not bad but not great.

Looks like a good stout with nice beige head and good lacing.

Smells like a nice roasty stout that somebody threw a bunch of pine needles in.

Tastes like somebody put an IPA in my stout. What are they thinking?

Mouth feel ok for a thin brown ale or IPA but not for a stout.

Overall not going back here. Pretty much a thin tasting stout with way too much IPA taste for the style.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is pitch black with a small tan head. The flavor is roasted malt. A very good stout, highly recommended.
