On tap at Urge Gastropub’s 53 tap Stone takeover. It was quite a list. I was a bit disappointed with this one. Not very thick in the glass, nor rich on the palate. Sharp roasty bitterness, without the big rich choclateness or coffee I so want in this.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Deep brown, ruby highlights, light to moderate frothy sandy head, spotty lacing. Has an odd cold remedy aroma, perhaps very soft cough syrup. Yeah, not so much a roasted malt nose, but instead a medicial cough syrup. Reminds me of when I was a kid and my mom force-fed me this stuff when I had a cold. Thankfully on the tongue there is some roasted malts, but guess what, it tastes a bit like Robitussin. Totally. Ugh, I am having to take bites of food or sips of another drink right after this to help quell the urge to gack. Well, perhaps its not as serious as that, but I don’t much care for the flavor profile. Comes across as very medicinal. Lets just leave it at that. Not one I would want to visit again. Lingering robitussin and very pale roasted malts and lactose sweetness. Blech...

Bottle. Poured black with a tan head that settled to a ring and left light lace. Light roast aroma. The flavor found roast and chocolate backgrounds. Medium to full creamy body.
