Is Great Lakes ever going to make anything that isn't fantastic? You get the impression it is going to primarily be cocoa, but the array of flavors are just fantastic. The hops mesh perfectly with the maltiness, which meshes perfectly with the heavier nature of the stout. At 9.0%, the alcohol is masked reasonably well. Fantastic.
impromptu backyard tackle soccer game + case of Blackout Stout + thinking I'm 18 again = broken ribs and toes (seemed like a good idea at the time)
