3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dimpled mug at the brewpub. Pours jet black with a thin, uber-creamy light tan head; nice sheeting lace. The nose is of sweet roasty malt with a lactose sweetness in support. Light to medium-bodied and super slick with a mildly sour finish. Sweet, dark roast, cocoa, lactic sweetness and a mild dark roasted bitterness at the finish. A nice stout and extremely quaffable for a beer at this ABV. I’d be surprised if the 8%, listed here, is accurate.

Poured dark brown in an English Pint glass with a slight aroma of coffee and chocolate. Small creamy tan head that leaves some nice lacing. Moderately sweet, with a nice coffee finish, it was smooth to drink and has quickly become one of my favorites hear at the 75th Street Brewery.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Faint aroma, but with some dark chocolate sweetness and coffee. Dark, opaque ebony color, rather slight head. Roasted and toasty malt flavors here, espresso, cream, dark chocolate, oat silkiness, light plummy fruitiness...possibly the most complex 75th St. beer I've sampled to date. Finishes with a light, chocolate syrupy sweetness. Medium body and low carbonation, smooth. Surprisingly tasty. I may even pick up a jug of this stuff before it goes away...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap, brewpub, part of six pack sampler. Pour is dark brown / black with a tight tan head. Get the malty / oatmeal aroma immediately. Roast flavor, with a nice full, creamy body. Finish is sweet and sugar, but closes nice and quick.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. Pours flat black with a medium thick light tan head that diminishes slowly. Patches of lace on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee, along with a touch of dark chocolate. Medium, smooth body with roasted malt and hops flavors. Some coffee and dark fruit is present too. The finish is short and roasty with a lingering coffee aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Very tasty but very thin, with a slick and very light mouthfeel. Creamy and full of some dark chocolate and roasty coffee, but has some hints of french silk pie, very smooth and creamy, just could use more body.
