3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I had this on tap at Ballast Point. It pours a very dark cola brown and opaque. The head is a light taupe color. The head fades to a thin cap quickly. Coffee nose. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Creamy to the finish. Standard stout. But, miles better than Guinness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nitro draft at Khyber Pass. Very dark copper pour with a nice tight head (thanks in part to the Nitro I’m sure.) Certainly a stout, but an unexpected sourness jumps out that may not be for everyone (but is for me!) The oatmeal adds a creamy chocolate feel. There is a darker stout hiding in there with notes of charcoal, coffee grounds, leather. Though both the sourness and the creaminess here seem to most define it. A nice break in between other dark beers, but maybe a bit much to have more than one at a time.

It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation. Taste of coffee and chocolate with some burnt notes. Dry finish. Tasty coffee stout, nicely balanced.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was a sample tasted at the brewery. There was a creamy head that stayed with the stout. The roasted malts was very smooth with a taste of pine nuts. The carbonation was soft and the finish was smooth. These beers were tasted on the outside terrace. The place was busy with visitors with growlers and people coming just to enjoy the beer.
