3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 Bottle: nearly black with some light shining through the edges; fine, light-tan head that sustains nicely for the duration of the glass. Aroma is huge roasted malt, faint sweetness like bittersweet chocolates, and some charred coffee beans. Not as strong or robust of a smell as I’d like. Taste is similar; roasted malts, toasted barley, faint coffee bean bitterness, some back-end dark fruit sweetness, faint black licorice. Not much hoppage to it at all. Medium bodied for a stout, a little thin but still fairly creamy. Reasonably decent stout, nothing too special, here.

This beer pours black with a beige head. The aroma is malt, chocolate, and coffee. The taste has chocolate and coffee flavors with sweetness up front and bitterness towards the end and the taste tends to linger.
