3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Westside location.
Unexceptional looks and feel. Seems a bit light in body even for style.
Light but adequate carbonation.
Generous load of dark roasted malts.
Slightly above average bitterness for style, probably due to the level of dark roasted grain.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had a half pour on their 8th anniversary. Thick black with substantial head. Like thick milkshake goodness head. Everything on this was subdued, but all worked together for a light enjoyable stout. Cocoa, malt, coffee, light sweet. Good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the west side location. Pours deep walnut with nearly no head. Aroma is roasted malt and a touch of espresso. Taste is semisweet with a bitter dry finish. Picking up a bit more coffee and bittersweet chocolate than in the taste vs the aroma. Body is medium, but on the flat side. An OK stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a pitch black with little head. Aroma contains chocolate, grapes, licorice. The flavor is malty with some chocolate and vanilla but also sour with grapes and raisins. This is more like a foreign stout with that aspect which is good. Overall a good beer.

Serving: Draft at the brewpub.
It pours an opaque black with a creamy tan head. The nose is very roasty with notes of coffee and wood. The flavor is full of molasses, almost to the point of being overpowering. It is also cloyingly sweet. Some flint and roasted malt comes out as the beer continues to work. This one strikes me as a one note wonder. A medium mouthfeel and a medium finish don’t leave anything to write home about. I would like this brew better if they took their foot off the sweetness pedal.

A nice dark brown body. This one has a very creamy feel to it. There are roasted malts, and chocolate. It is quite smooth and easy drinking. A nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Kind of disappointing, pours a deep dark black. Some bready toasty notes, with a bit of dried cocoa powder, and some roasted coffee beans. Quite dry on the palate, but smooth and creamy, but kind of non - descript.
