2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft @ the Breckenridge brewpub: Poured opaque with a big creamy tan head. The aroma was HUGE diacetyl. I have never smelled so much of it in a beer before. I had my head turned to the person next to me when the bartender put the beer down and I smelled it. There was some sugar notes as well . The flavor had tons of butterscotch as well but without the sugar sweetness that the aroma had. There was a little roasted malt that managed to poke through.

On tap nitro @ Breckenridge (Ballpark) poured an opaque black with a large lasting tan head. Aromas of milk chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt and light coffee. Palate was medium bodied and smoooth. Flavors of cocoa, vanilla, light roastiness and a hint of coffee with a smooth lingering chocolate finish. A great breakfast beer!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft, Kenosha Steakhouse, Breckenridge CO. Black with tan head. Nose of coffee, sweet oatmeal, burnt toast, roasted malt, and something vaguely sour or lactic in the background. Flavor is pretty much dry stout, fairly full, with again something sweet and sour in the background-- not offensive, but not necessarily altogether right, either. Easy drinker, went nicely with my hunk of buffalo.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Black with great head. A great pour of a beer, compliments to the brewpub. Very watery. Taste is too much like coffee for me. Too much aftertaste. Reminds me of a porter not a stout. My wife loves it and won’t stop talking about it.

nitro pour, well, it smells like something on nitro, light cocoa comes through. a nice looking beer. dark in color with the white head playing well against the dark body. the beer version of cookies and cream ice cream and folgers coffee, but watered down so just the astruingent coffee note lingers. but it does have a nice balance between the sugary cream and and bitter coffee with a bit of dry cocoa lingering.
