3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaque brown. Smooth and subtle coffee and toast aroma. Still smooth on the palate, full body, a little sweet with more roasted malt. Well hidden alcohol. Nothing to hit you over the head with here, just an unobtrusive, sessionable (at 7% ?) stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ brewery. Black with a small dissipating head. Neat chocolaty aroma with burnt toast and roasted cereal grains. Stouty flavor of roasted licorice, chocolate, brown malts, all on a creamy texture. Not superb, but a well made stout nonetheless.
