Style: English Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our inky-black stout had a smooth, round palate with a dreamlike undercurrent of bittersweet chocolate. This dense liquid-silk summoned hope from hibernation and balanced winter's endless white snows with a rich swirl of creamy black rapture.

A solid English stout. roasted malts, caramel and chocolate up front, followed by very slight lingering hop bitterness. A great representation of the style.

Can definitely taste the notes of chocolate upon swallowing. Very full bodied taste an very eye appealing. Highly recommend giving it a try for being a stout!

Pitch black colored beer with a slowly fading tan head. Taste starts out as chocolate and finishes as coffee. Velvety smooth it goes down like liquid silk. A very good stout in my opinion.
