Not only was this really good but it is sessionable as well...

I have had a lot of stouts in my time but rarely do I come across one that is sessionable *and* flavorful. This one breaks the mold. It has a beautifully dark color, good foam and staying power, and a mouthfeel that is lightly carbonated, medium-bodied, and crisp to the tongue. The smell wasn't very discernible - the basic notes of what you would expect from a stout and nothing more. Yet it's taste was full of flavor - malt, hints of chocolate with a slight sweetness that was none too distracting. Overall this is a very good beer, exceptional - really - and something I will be on the lookout moving forward.

Black pour with tan foam; good clarity under cap; decent retention; moderate minus lacing. Lite roast and burnt milk nose. Touch of sugary milk and malt. Overall an ok lite and somewhat creamy/lactose dominant stout.

Black, mostly opaque, with a fine head and some lace. Full almost syrupy body.
