3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
can thanks to CLevar. Aroma of dark, rich chocolate and coffee. Behind that there is some cocoa powder and biscuit, bready character. Pours pitch black into a snifter with a light brown head that laces well. Taste is initially a little roasty, almost burnt, and dark bitter coffee. Flavor leans a lot more toward a stout than the nose would indicate. Fairly drying finish. overall a very nice stout.

On tap at Grumpy’s NE pours a dark brown/black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, slight piney bitter hops with a slick palate. I’d say this swings more to the side of decent porter.

Poured from a can into english pint glass. Medium tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and hints of pine and grass. I really like this beer even though it is a bit thinner than most stouts.

Pretty good version of a stout. Pours a dark black with smallish head. Aroma is full of roasted malt. Flavor is a pretty balanced combination of roast coffee and grain, with a lot of malt sweetness. Semi-bitter finish.
