L - 2 finger chestnut head atop an opaque dark brown body.

S - sugar, chocolate, a little coffee.

T - follows the nose. The milk sugar is the most prominent element, but there is some roast to balance things out. Rather sweet, low bitterness, no booziness.

F - medium-light body by stout standards.

O - Always enjoyable.

While it doesn't have as thick or pronounced a head as many other stouts, the creamy mouth feel is dominant in this brew. I taste strong notes of dark chocolate and coffee, with a balanced finish that has just the right amount of bitterness and spiced bite. This is currently my go-to beer.
