3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Pours deep, dark brown with creamy tan head. Aroma is roasted and chocolate malts, faint dark fruit notes, and some coffee. Flavor was a solid stout base with good malt character and subtle hops, but I wished there was more coffee presence given the name as it definitely got buried beneath other flavors. Medium body and carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft in the Back Forty tasting room. Poured black with a medium-sized tan head. Aroma was heavily roasted malt, some coffee and vanilla. Flavor was roasted malt, coffee, some coffee and roast malt bitterness, quite sweet. Thick palate. Was pretty tasty, but I don’t think I could drink a whole pint -- rather thick and syrupy. Happy I got to try it.
