3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a bottle. Black, with a head that starts off fairly large and thick but quickly fades. It is not sweet, but rather dry and bitter, with some chocolate, and a flavor that is somewhat reminiscent of coffee. There is a a fair amount of hops, for the style. For a simple session stout, this is good. Thick palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Northbound Smokehouse (Minneapolis, Minnesota, 20/2/13)
Color is dark brown with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is roasty and citrus. Taste is almost all bitter with a very light underlying sweetness. A decent beer, but I’m surprised they’re calling this a stout. If not for the name I would have guessed it were a black IPA. I had to be sure after the first sip that I was given the right thing. It might not have been so surprising if not for the fact that the nose was overpoweringly hoppy.
