Draught at the brewpub. Very dark brown with a small tan head. Smooth coffee and oat aroma. The flavor is smooth and has a robust oat mouthfeel that balances a nice mellow dark roast coffee bitterness. Lightly sweet and robust for a regular strength stout. Very tasty.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Apparently black color, attractive nitro head appearance. Aroma is earthy roasted malts, cofee, but sharply acidic spent grounds in character. Balanced malts, very earthy once again - a little much. Some smokiness is present. Thin, papery acidic finish. Not my thing.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours black with a light brown head. Like all of the beers at this pub they are served ice cold. You need to give them a good 20 min to warm up before you can actually taste anything. Didn’t seem to be served on nitrogen (I prefer stouts without nitrogen anyways). Well carbonated for a stout. Aromas are of coffee and burnt malt. Flavors are excessively charred. I prefer my stouts more on the roasted side and burnt. Finishes clean
