The aroma is weak and acidic but has some coffee and toast. The appearance is brown with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin for the style. Overall it's average. Don't expect too much from this one. But it's worth a try.

Had on cask at the brewpub in Coral Springs. Fairly weak sweet stout, with some bitterness. So bittersweet.Some coffee. Whole thing didn't work, really like an old cold coffee. Dark brown colour with some white head. No like too much. Light mouthfeel.
