"predominance of smokey malts and a dry hop nose...more of the same from the flavor. good, but left me wanting a little more of everything. very dry finish as advertised."

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours black, with a small brown head that quickly fades,leaving moderate lacing. Nose is dark malt, and the taste follows the nose. Long finish, with some hop bitterness to balance the creamy mouth feel. Solid stout.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Absolutely delicious. Unlike many other stouts, this one doesnít have an overwhelming alcohol note to it. Just great malty, deep roasted flavor with a bit of coffee (not too much!) to complement the thick, smooth body. Great beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smell of pitch black coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Good-sized head, nice retention, great lacing. Pitch black color. Tastes dark and rich, very minimal sugar, nice bitterness, char-roast. Medium bodied; doesnít over-power, but better to slowly savor than session. Nice follow-up to sesame kale in olive oil, before a smoked ham, lettuce, and tomato toasted sandwich.

On tap at the brewery. Comes almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and some hops. Very nice.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is chocolate, dried dark fruits and molasses. Taste is heavy roasted malts, leather and tobacco up front - somewhat different than the aroma. Thereís a hoppy bitterness that really kicks in for the mid and the long finish. This one covers everything and is one of the better stouts Iíve had. Itís almost like a stout blended with a black IPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I did open and pour this little on the warm side. Appearance is quite nice with a very long-lasting head and lots of fine lace. Aroma is Malt & toasted barley. This is kind of an odd one as the flavor is fairly bland for this stout and with a little medicinal character. Body is good. Like to try this one again a little colder.
