4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the brewery.
Aroma is fairly roast forward with some nice coffee character. Light dark fruit aroma along with faint tobacco, leather and ash.
Pours dark brown with a medium think tan head with good retention and nice lacing.
Flavor is similar to aroma with some nice sweetness. Moderate roast notes with a touch of coffee. Light dark fruit aromas as well as touches of leather and tobacco. Medium bitterness and just a touch of dank hop flavor.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low but present astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall a pretty enjoyable American stout. Really nice, sweet malt with some complimentary yeast character.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark roasted malts and coffee, with hints of chocolate greet the nose. Pours a solid dark brown with a quickly disapearing tan head and nice dripping ringed lacing. The taste is robustly roasty and bitter! Coffee, dark and roasted malts are the primary flavors. Grain/biscuit flavors are also present. Hop bitterrness dominates the finish and aftertaste. Medium-full body and medium carbonation. Oveall, a rewardingly robust roasty rich stout. Oh yeah!

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 This is definitely a big, smokey beer. It could have used a little more chocolate notes in the back to balance it out, but not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours black with a trace of amber when held up to the light. Wispy coffee colored head, lots of lacing. Smell is lots if dark roast, dark chocolate, hops and coffee. Taste is a great balance of all four, with bitterness in the back and chocolate sweetness on the tongue. Very good balance, nothing overbearing about any of the major flavor components. Drinks more like an American Porter to me but very good none the less.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 Bottle pour. Very dark brown color with a thick dark cream head. Pretty heavy aroma with a strong full bodied flavor. Overall a good stout, defiantly more of a session stout.
Hand drawn, tap house special. Very thick tan head, the nitrogen is obvious In the appearance. The taste and aroma are consistent, the feel is very smooth, finished very malty.
