This poured a finger and a half of tan head with a soapy tinge of bone left lacing down throughout the glass. Lots of carbonation visible in an almost black color with a twinge of amber around the edge of the glass.r poured from a local 12 oz. can.

The smell was of dark roasted coffee and very rich roasted malts.

Mouth is very crazy because taste is so full but mouth feel is fairly light and finished fairly crisply with no lingering ashes or coffee bitterness.

Overall taste is of coffee, and as such is quite pleasant, There is an almost afterthought bitter of chocolate and coffee that I feel could have been production .

This is a low abv stout with a Belgian yeast strain added. Not sure what else was done during the brewing process. While I like this brewery, this was a pretty bland offering to me. The esthers from the Belgian yeast didn't seem to do a lot pairing with the low profile stout. The base beer prior to yeast seemed to be a mild stout without a lot of roast, cream, coffee or chocolate elements which I'm guessing was the brewer's intent to let the Belgian yeast shine but sadly it ends up a pretty tame, nothing too crazy beer.
