3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro at Breckenridge. Pours a deep brown with a tan head, cascade, blah blah blah. Pretty generic appearance. Nose is faint hops, nice level of roast and chocolate, but difficult to discern due to the nitro head. On tasting, nice dryness, creamy palate. Good bitterness and a nice chocolate profile. Pretty decent stout overall. Could use more roast and robustness.

On nitro draft at the ballpark brewpub. Pour is fine bubbled, khaki, as you’d expect from a nitro tap. Cola brown with a hint of amber; its tough to get past the head on this one; anyway, the nose is cream, obviously, and sweet caramel, and a hint of cocoa. The flavor profile has a bitterness from the hop profile, a light smoked element, cocoa, and a bit of grain from the oatmeal. Its a nice drinker, actually.

On tap at Smokin’ Dave’s BBQ in Estes Park, CO. Pours nearly black with a one-finger tan head. Nose is chocolate, light coffee, mild roast, and some nuts. Smells sweet and the taste confirms it. A bit thin and pretty average, bit good with my brisket.
