2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at brewpub and served with nitro: Near black with a tan creamy nitro pour head and very good lace. The aroma is roasty and charred, chocolate, herbal and flowery hops, walnut and a hint soapy. The taste is dark malts, bittersweet with a mild hop background. Very light smoke and nutty qualities on the finish. The mouth feel is creamy but thin. A very average brewpub paint-by-numbers dry stout.
