3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Strong coffee stout; chocolate was not apparent. Good color and overall look... a solid black. Full body as would be expected for this style and a satisfying / pleasing beer to drink. The strong coffee is not my favorite, otherwise I would rate this a little higher.
