    [Suggested Glassware: Snifter]

    The pour was a murky pitch black with an average (1-2 finger) chocolate shake brown creamy head that was mostly diminishing, down to a thin film and medium collar that pretty much lasted throughout and had good sticky lacing.

    The aroma was of a roasted dark malt, mild resin hops and a leathery yeast with notes of chocolate, dried dark fruit (prunes) and a nice mild alcohol tinge.

    The taste was very malty and just a tad sweet with a hint of chocolate early on, then progressed with a mild bitterness, a touch of dark fruit and a bold coffee note towards the finish. The flavor hung on for a decent duration after the swallow with a smooth choco-coffee taste and a mild alcohol warming sensation at the end.

    Mouthfeel was medium in body with a thin oily texture and a medium carbonation.

    Overall this was a nice a roasty brew, although I did find it to be just a little thin for a stout it did possess very nice taste and a great drinkability...

    Poured black with a large, creamy, tan colored head that lasted a good long time.
    Aroma dominated by mocha coffee with hints of roasted malts and bitter chocolate.
    Sweet malty taste up front followed by mocha coffee with a bitter chocolate finish. Slight alcohol presence, perfectly balanced.
    Silky and thick mouthfeel with above average carbonation.
