550 mL clear bottle, Arbor Beverage Depot, Douglasville, GA. $3.99.
Jet black, and pours with a beautiful frothy, thick head. The head is almost a strawberry blond in color and is persistent.
The overall aroma is sweet, with the predominant taste being sweet maltiness. There is very little bitterness.
A really creamy, full mouthfeel and mild aftertaste completes the experience. The sweetness is definitely the major factor here.
Not a brutal stout like some can be, but a gentle, caressing brew that many will love.
