Draft. Pour is dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is pretty standard but solid with hints of chocolate, light roasted malt, and a hint of cream. Flavor is also very standard with roasted malt, a light chocolate hint and a clean roasted finish. No complaints here, very straight forward stout.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the brewery’s tasting room. Pours a mostly opaque dark brown with a little tan head that leaves a lasting ring the entire time. Aroma of rich, roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, toast, molasses, and a little earth. The flavor almost exactly follows suit, with a lot of coffee and chocolate, roasted malts, earth, and caramel and molasses sweetness. The body is just a little thin and under-carbonated, but barely; I’d call it light-medium bodied. Roasty, smooth mouthfeel. Still, this is an awesome stout and I actually liked it just a touch better than the LSD imperial stout upon my first try of both.
