3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at GTMW. Poured deep brown with a dark creamy beige head. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla and chocolate with a nice, soft feel to it. The flavor found toasty chocolate and black malts at the core, with some malt-inspired sourness on the edges.. became a little sharp on the finish. Medium-bodied with higher, filling carbonation on the palate.. good except for some odd sourness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Blue Heron. Deep red-brown-black. A really nice big coffee stout. Mellow carbonation, mild to minimal hopping. All out roast malt bomb, a little oily but not syrupy or overly viscous. Highly respectable, one of the best WI stouts for sure.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the Blue Heron brewpub in Marshfield, Wisconsin. Pours a clear dark brown colored brew with an average sized and creamy beige colored head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of toasted dark malt, floral hops and a hint of black malt. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of chocolate, toasted dark malt, and some very light coffee. Finish is semi-sweet at first followed by a mild dry bitterness that slowly disappears. A touch more toasted dry malt compared to the Parkins Dark.
