3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 Draft. Black with medium tan head. Strong aroma of coffee with some notes of roasted malt. Medium body with strong coffee flavor upfront, some malt sweetness, and a slight bitter finish. Very nicely balanced with not too much coffee flavor or bitterness. -- Aroma of stale coffee and roasted malts. Medium body with stale coffee notes and chocolate. Not as good this time around.

Deep coffee flavor without being a novelty. Smokey. Avondale goes a bit light on the ABV on most of their beers - would have preferred more bite in a stout. Overall Iím impressed and was not expecting much out this brew. Compare to Samuel Smithís Organic Chocolate Stout.

Pours an opaque dark chocolate brown - not much head, but this was a short pour from a bottle at the HMOG. Roast coffee aroma is very tempting. Flavor has notes of quality coffee, chocolate and roast malt. No joking. Smooth, firm texture leaves a nice coffee finish.

The best of the Avondale mix but mainly yeast and dark coffee flavor. Very dark. Very nice.
