3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a thin mocha head of fair duration, over a dark (SRM 35) clear body...nose of coffee cocoa, and chocolate.....tastes initially of mocha, the coffee dominated by chocolate, medium sweetness with a mild bitter hop finish....mouth feel medium weight and lovely creaminess. I have not had this kind of stout before and so have no prior expectations.
