One of the best American brewed stouts I've tasted. Has that perfect balance between not too heavy, not too light, not too coffee flavored and not tasteless. Reminds me of some of the better stouts I had in Ireland during a month of stout tasting and general mayhem. And for those of you who have not experienced it, all Guinness does not taste the same.

I tried this from a Nitro-pushed tap, which adds to its creamy character. This is not a Hop-head beer, and I wouldn't recommend it to my friends who like those burnt coffee tasting stouts. This is just a well made American version of a not quite traditional Irish stout.

Appearance: On top is a beige head that is about two fingers thick. Beneath that head is an abyss of wonderful darkness.

Aroma: Espresso notes, molasses, roasted malts and hops. Dark fruits are in the back. Touches of milk sugar in the end.

Taste: Silky smooth mouthfeel. Molasses, brown bread and sugar, roasted hops almost burnt but certainly not. Cocoa is mixed in well amongst the dark furits.

Notes: Overall a very tasty an drinkable beer start to finish. Cheers.
