3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Raccoon Lodge. Standard stout aroma. Surprisingly light in body for a stout, but still a full-bodied taste. Malt and milk chocolate flavors predominate. Easy finish, with a pleasing sweet aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the Barrel House. Dark brownish-black color with a medium khaki head that recedes slowly. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Light-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of sweet malt, coffee and slight dark chocolate. The finish is semi-sweet with a roast malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Cascade, pours a fairly clear dark amber with a small tan head. Aroma of light roast, bittersweet dark cocoa, and some light toast. Flavour is very bland – with dry bitter cocoa (but barely discernible), some muted roast and not much else. Very bland and muted, as often with this style. Drinkable but weak.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Raccoon Lodge. Pours a pure black color with a medium off-white/beige head. A big roast and char nose. Really sessionable without sacrificing flavor: chocolate, vanilla, sweet nutty malts. Light roast and metal. Good.
