A dark brown, almost black, color in the glass, this enticing stout opens with scents of mocha, roasted malt and coffee bean. The medium-bodied mouthfeel is round and creamy, with dark, rich, roasty and chocolaty flavors that flood the palate and carry through to the long, warming finish. It's a decadent and well-balanced pour, thought the alcohol becomes more pronounced as it warms.
