Very good ,tried some time ago...didn’t expect the slight cocoa overtones..perhaps why didn’t just die for it.....but overall a very not bad beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had on tap at the brewpub in downtown San Francisco. Dark brown to black pour with a thick, mocha colored head. Slight coffee in the aroma. Flavor has some of the same chocolate, with a bit of earthiness and good lacticity. Mouthfeel is decently thick. Overall, an above average brewpub stout.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black, roasty. Body is thin and slick without chewiness, texture, or heft. Hops are there only slightly in aroma but belch to fullness. Better than the texture should allow.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black and opaque. Small tan head. Strong roasted aroma and flavor. Faint hops. Medium body. Not what I expected in a sweet stout, tastes more like a standard stout or even a dry stout. Not bad, just not what I was expecting.
