2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours stout black-brown with ample foam. Only faintly sweet toasted malts (and maybe some roast) come through in the nose. Taste is decent, initially sweet and dark, but then somewhat hollow and seemingly underattenuated. Tastes a bit like decent homebrew. Not a strong offering, but not awful.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap, NOLA International Beer Festival Fest 2012. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy brown head. The nose is a little sweet with some chocolate and a touch of graininess. The flavor is a little too thin maybe and a touch husky with toasty and light chocolate notes, minimal bitterness on the finish. Lighter bodied, a touch thin, soft fizzy carbonation. OK, not a standout, but drinkable. Comes across like a light Porter.

Nice brown color with creamy head that disaapate quickly. Nice roasted malt and hint of chocolate. very carbonated with coffee after notes. This is a good beer, it just seems to missing that little extra "kick" to make this an even better beer. But nicely done overall.

Enjoyed at a @JaxBrewBitch bottle share at Brewer’s pizza in Jacksonville,FL... This one looked good, smelled good, good body, but just lacked in the flavor department to make it a really good beer. Almost...
