4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Eccentric Cafe. Poured deep brown with a well-retained cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up sweeter chocolates and milky sugars on a succulent first impression.. touches of coffee and black patent beneath.. just what I needed! The flavor was sweet throughout with chocolate leading.. lactic sugars were laced throughout.. brownie-like finish.. bitterness was light and earthy. Sweet overall on the palate with perfect balance.. medium-bodied.. thankfully a long finish. Excellent stuff!!

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap 2/4/09 at the Eccentric Cafe. On the board "dry stout/ contains dairy". Not muich in the way of aroma, pouring a dark rich brown with a thin head. Notes of caramel, milk chocolate, and a hint of fig. Fairly dry almost crisp finish with a slight metallic undertone. Not too bad.
