3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Can. Black color with a medium head. Aroma of chalk amd light pine. Dry chocolate flavor. Moderate roasted barley. Fairly bitter, but more malt astringcy than hop.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep black with no real head, though that head would be beige. Toasty roasty burnt aroma with some coffee and a bit of caramel. Taste is surprisingly citrusy. Toast and coffee flavors dominate the mid game with just a touch of sweetness. Kind of watery, though you could call it juicy thanks to the citrus notes.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Lake Avenue Cafe - Duluth, MN. Hoppy and warm aroma, with a bit of lime zest. For a stout, this is an okay Black IPA. Seems hoppy and light on the roasted barley. The sweetness level is a little high and the hops get pretty grassy. In the middle of the pack.
