2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap as cask conditioned. On the plus side, served just slightly cooler than room temperature. However, I found it to be very thin, almost watery, with not a lot of flavor. Maybe I had an off batch, but the thinness of the feel overpowered almost all other impression I had.

draft.even the head was dark on this brew. completely opaque black, extremme sweet carmel coffee aroma. incredible roasted nut coffee taste with just enough hops to smooth out the sweetness

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Brouwers. Black with a coffee and maybe chocolate aroma. Very smooth and drinkable and yet there is a lot going on in the flavor. The hops cut through the roasted malt keep this one perfectly balanced. I have been drinking this one for years and wait every fall for it!!!

A very good stout. Not quite as smooth as their Dublin Stout but Iíve had many nontheless.
