Purchased at Triangle Wine in Morrisville, NC.

A - Beautiful bottle! A deep black with the faintest light coming through at the edges. A big tan head. Nice lacing as the glass empties.

S - Loads of dark chocolate. Then some vanilla, coffee and cream (lactose?).

T - More dark chocolate with hints of coffee. A moderate sweetness with a mild lingering roasted malt bitterness. The chocolate and sweetness work well in this interesting stout.

M - Velvety smooth. Somewhat thin and fine but it works. A well behaved carbonation.

O - A classic English ale.
