3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Jet black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of chocolate syrup, roasted barley, and a bit of coffee. An interesting contrast of heavy ash-like roast and a thicker than expected body. Chocolate and heavy roast elements persist, along with a subtle hint of red grape. Aggressively roasted, but still balanced.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can. Pours a clear black body under a tight bubbled frothy brown head that left some delicate lacing. The nose is roasty with lots of coffee and chocolate notes. It smells a bit on the sweet side, almost like thereís some lactose in here. Pretty solid nose. The flavor isnít especially sweet though, despite there being a fairly heavy milk chocolate taste in the finish. A nice lingering roast note after the chocolate fades. Medium bodied with a clingy mouth coating finish and soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty darn good Stout. I like it a lot.

Steve D brought a can to the house. Black like oil. All roast malt flavor, no real hop. Roasted, dry finish. A unique brew.

Tap at the brewery. Black, lacing head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Very heavy, dark roast in thee flavor, burnt grain and coffee. Palate is on the thick side. I am not sure what i think of this very heavy roast that makes the beer bitter.

Sampled from the tap at the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Pours black with a dark brown head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a nice roasted malt note with some chalky dark grains and a bit of coffee. Flavor has more sweet chocolate but still mainly bitter dark grains, roasted malts and a touch of coffee.

I just saw the can and thought it would be a type of black IPA--dark but not stout-like. Ooops, I was wrong. Smooth and moderately rich, with a prominent roasted flavor and long chocolate finish. Good stuff. Can.

Jet black, creamy tan head. Smells of roasted malt, light chocolate. Creamy and smooth with just a light bitterness. This is very good stout. The can says itís a bridge between porter and stout but to me itís a real tasty stout. The wife liked it too I will be picking up more of this.
