This was a fantastic stout. North Coast Brewing (California) does some really good stuff and this one was incredibly good. The aroma is caramel and the pour is very dark and opaque.

The head is not too thick and is light brown. The flavor is caramel with a touch of coffee and a little bitter. It's not too strong and goes well with food. Wow, is it good. I got this one in a 4 pack of singles (12 oz bottles). At 9% ABV, I do recommend eating a little something with it. 0.o
If you are a stout drinker this is a good, smooth one for you. If not, this is a very nice one to start. :)
