3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint at CCB. Opaque unfiltered brown-black. Thinnish beige head. Roasty classic chocolate aroma. A touch soapy and maybe a pinch undermatured. Medium bodied, highly sessionable. Dry, sugary, maybe not as nice as it might have been before I sampled and drank through the menu. Classic, well done Stout. Some mild coffee in the aftertaste. Probably deserves a higher score...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Laser Wolf for Cigar City Tap Takeover. Dark color with minimal head. Aroma is pretty much straight up coffee bean. The flavor has a dry mouth feel but the coffee is still very much present. Although I enjoyed this beer the dryness in some way took away from the coffee flavor.

So nice to have a firkin of a nice dry stout at a beer festival. Pours a dark stout brown with an off-white head. Nose is coffee, earth, sweet coffee, cafe con leche, and a hint of chicory. Flavor is coffee, earth, and dark chocolate with bits of cocoa in there as well. Light in body for the style and a nice addition to the qualities of a dry stout.
