Pretty good beer, not great but pretty good. Deep stout flavor with a little bit of hoppy bite in the beginning middle is slightly pleasant and the after taste is a decent stout taste.

Pours a black color that tries its best not to let any light through, mission accomplished!!. Head is light coffee colored with mini craters and very very nice lacing left behind. Aroma is of roasted malts and coffee beans, very pleasant and not overpowering. Taste is also nice with a great blend of roasted coffee beans and bittersweet chocolate. Balance is nice between roast flavors, coffee, chocolate and hops. Good carbonation makes this stout very drinkable with a good kick of bitter at the end. Decent balance..

Now this is a really good stout. It might even be great, but I'll have to try it a second time before deciding on that. Distinct bittersweet dark chocolate and black licorice flavors, nicely balanced. Really glad I found this one as it will make a nice alternative to Guinness Foreign Extra Stout (the gold standard of stouts).
