3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Rock Bottom - Atlanta. Aroma is intensely roasted malt and some coffee but a nice background of herbal hops. Pours a deep opaque blackish-mahogany with 1-2 fingers worth of thick creamy crown, good retention and fingery lacing. Flavour is full of roasted and cholocate tones, slight coffee, and a nice prominent hop bitterness. Finish is extremely smooth leaving a great roasty aftertaste. Mouthfeel is creamy with the perfect amount of moderate carbonation. Overall a wonderful stout, although nothing too characteristic - too bad this is only at the restaurant.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A great stout - jumps out at you with more hops than many stouts and a terrific flavor. Great roasted malt and well balanced. I’ve had a few dozen of these at the source in Chattanooga which is a very cool brewery. I would love to see this bottled!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2008 Update 10/2008. Had again and seemed really creamy compared to before. More mocha also. Almost more like a sweet stout.
Poured black. Pretty thin brown head. Roasty aroma, not real powerful. Inoffensive going down, mostly coffee and licorice. Not bad for a place trying to be fairly main stream. Had this at the Rock Bottom Brewery in Charlotte NC.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft in Jacksonville. The one there is 4.5% not 5.6% as listed here.
The aroma is a massive dose of chocolate and coffee with accompanying burnt/toasted dark malt notes. The body is full on black and holds a lasting mocha head. Huge coffee component, dark chocolate. Very smooth mouthfeel and clean with well defined flavor demarcations. Nice.
