3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a dark black with creamy white head from nitro tap at Proof on St. Patrick’s Day. Light scents of soy sauce and coffee. Taste is like a Guinness, but way better, with a little more roasted malts and a smooth finish. Good dry stout that you should try if you get the chance.

Growler generously gifted by Chaney. Thanks Brandon!
The beer is dark brown, nearing black. The head is thick and beige and leaves some random lacing on the snifter. The aroma offers dark fruit, smoke, and roast. The flavor is quite nice. Eight ounces down, this is likely the best Irish stout I have yet had. Light bodied and easy drinking, with spot on carbonation. I would definitely drink this again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gallon growler courtesy of Atlaggie. Crap that’s a lot of beer. Please keep your growler’s to the 1/2 gallon size or smaller next time. Deliciously well made classic dry stout. The finish is crisp and clean. Aroma of melty chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt and cocoa texture. Pretty ridiculous and true to style.

The aroma is smoky and almost notes of peat. The appearance is dark, medium thickness, and a decent creamy head with a mocha color. The flavor has huge smokiness and then settles smoothly on the palate without much lingering except a crisp dry stout.

On tap at the Coffee District. Dry and hoppy. I’m such a huge fan of the CCB, but this is not my favorite style...

On tap at CCB. Dark pour with a lush chestnut colored head and spotty lace. Aroma is heavy bittersweet chocolate and roast. Nice body. A blast of roasty bitterness upfront with a nice dry underlining chocolate sweetness.
