2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 52. This draft brew was enjoyed at the brewery in Saint Augustine Florida. This brew poured a very small head of mostly lasting light brown colored medium sized bubbles that left behind an opaque black colored body with no visible carbonation. The aroma was very mild with malty notes and the mouthfeel was smooth and slightly tingly. It had a weak coffee, weak dark malt flavor. Sorry Alexander Strange, but id did not live up to my level of stout goodness.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ordered draft at A1A Aleworks in Saint Augustine, FL. Served in a stout glass, dark brown color with dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, some coffee with a slightly earthy note. Taste was malty roast, some chocolate and dark fruit with very light hop note. Medium body, average carbonation, slightly creamy with sweet roast finish. Overall quite tasty, a lighter body but still full of flavor. Nice drinking over the downtown streets of the oldest city.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light aromas and flavors of coffee, chocolate and maybe some charcoal. Pours a nice opaque black with a small khaki head that left some lacing. Mouthfeel was slightly creamy but overall too thin. A decent stout I guess but nothing special.

Tap at brewpub. Coffee and chocolate taste pretty discreet, not much hops in there. A bit watery and served too cold... Still decent and enjoyable.

Served nitro at this location, but not so at Ragtime. Lots of tan lacing and the characteristic thick and stable nitro head. Nitro affects the aroma, which includes pleasant charcoal notes. Creamy nitro mouthfeel. Lots of cocoa throughout. Smooth and good.

Near black with a nitro head. Pruney aroma with light chocolate accents and slight fruitiness. Good chocolate malt character with light dark fruit notes to add some nuance. Smooth body. Off-dry finish.
