Pours dark red with tan head. Aroma is strong of chocolate and espresso with a bit of sweet sour fruit esters on the nose. Taste is amazing with a great mix of bitter and sweet and a bittersweet finish that is delicious and enticing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reminds me more of a porter than stout in its body. Roasty nose, porter mouth feel. Fair amount of hops and bitterness.

Bottle from Cork 57. Deep dark brown body with medium tan head. Nose is malty, toasty, caramel. Taste is also of malts, caramel, spices, ginger. Creamy with pretty strong carbonation and some dark chocolate in the finish. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Dark but clear black-mahogany, light tan head. Strong espresso notes, some lighter dark chocolate notes. Hints of caramel. Fresh earth. Decently bitter, fairly dry. Very long, dry, bitter finish. Medium body, some chewiness, not particularly creamy. Alcohol is understated but present. Good.

Poured from bottle into a snifter darkest of brown black with a thin tan head.

Great every day stout. Aroma like a chocolate covered espresso bean. Taste like a super smooth roasty oat forward stout. Well balanced. Great beer.

For those who don’t like an overly aggressive stout this the stout for you. ABV is not overpowering makes for a good year round stout. I would buy this again not on my top of the list beers but for sure an easy go to beer.
