stouty black pour, medium in consistency with a thin to medium soapy
light beige head... Aroma of cocoa and cbocoalte with a dry
roastiness. Fairly standard...Solid roasted malt and cocoa
characteristics while ending on a slightly bitter roasted note with a
touch if dryness. Medium sweetness overall. Light to medium bodied

Draft at stillwater grille. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Nice roasted malt notes on the nose. Big roasted malt notes on the tongue. Wow! Has just the right amount of mouthfeel. Finishes clean and tight. Very nice! One of the best in the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours a very dark mahogany color with a translucent edge. A dark khaki colored head is small and smooth, and it leaves behind a good amount of splotchy lacing. The nose is dry and darkly roasted, showing bitter chocolate dark barley notes primarily. Clean, dark coffee roast notes compliment well, completing the simple but well executed aroma. Flavors again feature roasted barley and dry dark cocoa, with more toasted coffee notes and a finish of bitter, earthen hops. The palate is just about bone dry, medium bodied, and a bit over carbonated. It seems prickly or scratchy almost on the tongue. Overall, it’s a decent little session stout, but there’s nothing ground breaking going on.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at RBWG on a couple different occasions. This is a very mediocre Irish Stout. Overloaded with carbonic acid and astringency and a harsh minerality, and completely lacking in the light, airy drinkability and subtle vanilla and roast notes posited by the style. I really don’t know what happened here. I could hardly finish my pint, and this is coming from an Irish Stout lover who was incredibly psyched to see this was on tap.

Nitro draft at Proof. Classic dry stout look with a nice brown head of tight bubbles. Nice aroma of roasted malt and coffee escapes the dense head. Classic flavor of dark malt, espresso and bitter chocolate. Good and true to form.
