The beer pours black in color. There is an inch of thick and somewhat creamy light tan head. The aroma is mild dark roasted malts, with light char, and some chocolate. The taste follows the aromas, hitting all the same notes, more char in the flavor than in the aroma. The beer drinks smooth, creamy, easy, with a moderate bitterness and a dry finish. This is a nice, easy drinking stout. It is flavorful, but not a sipper; a good session stout.
