3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had on tap at Big River Grille in downtown Chattanooga. Poured to dark brown color with a thin tan head that stuck around to mid-glass and left a little lacing. Both the nose and taste were predominantly chocolate, with just a tad of roasted nuts and coffee. Mouthfeel was medium bodied and almost chewy sweet, but enjoyable, with a finish that was long and somewhat sticky.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2015 Served on tap at the JAX Seven Bridges location. Revised upwards with sample from tap in Chattanooga.
Looks inky black in somewhat low light. Small and semi-durable tan head. Almost no lacing (JAX) / good head and fine lacing (Tenn.).
Medium body with near medium carbonation.
Aroma: simple: dark roasted malts.
Flavor: rich but not quite balanced. A bit more burnt and smokey malts than optimal (JAX); just right in Tenn.. Lasting, smokey, dark roasted grain aftertaste.

Pint at big river in chattanooga with Brian. Good stout. Nothing spectacular about it but very solid. I wish there food was as good as the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
