Overall not a bad little stout. Appearance is as it should be- dark brownish black, nearly opaque and minimal tan head. Smell is a bit weaker than the taste, but I get a nice roastiness up front with slightly more coffee than bitter chocolate. Only a small hint of alcohol is present. Mouthfeel is decent, medium in body.
Very drinkable.
