Welcome as a cup of sweet coffee and cream by a campfire, this jetblack brew throws aromas of espresso, heavy cream, sweet chocolate, roasted malts and a hint of smoke. Soft esters and hops are deep in the background, and the beer pours with a creamy, tan head that produces impressive lacing. On the palate, expect a restrained, velvety sweet coffee character with caramelized sugar notes followed by a hint of appealing bitterness. With an alluring richness from malts and nitrogen gas, this medium-bodied stout coats the tongue with creaminess that holds no hint of astringency. While not complex, this stout is stylistically accurate, technically commendable, appealing and delicious.
