Solid, Tap at Beachwood LB, recommended by my server as her favorite, Lots of bitter chocolate and coffee, but still a good floral nose. Decent stout but just a weird finish to me.

On tap at the brewery. It pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma has pleasant notes of caramel, vanilla and roasted malt. The flavor is very chocolaty, rich and roasted. Beautiful. Nice creamy palate without being too hot or flabby. Great impy stout.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. Thick black color with dense tan head. The taste is rich and full sweetness up front but balanced out with some heavy bitterness on the back end and finishes very dry. The body is full and more smooth than creamy and has long dry bitter finish. Overall great example of the style, nice bitterness to round it out and worth trying.
