I first smelled this stout and I got nothing but chocolate. And then I took my first sip and not a lot of chocolate. Then after that all I got was raisins and dates and dark fruits. To me this stout is ok...... I won't be running out to get more anytime soon.

Decent stout, very thin, taste pretty good more chocolate not so much coffee note. Worth a try but there are better options in my opinion.
