3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Barley Bros Brew Fest, Meridian ID. Very dark brown and a brown milk chocolate head. Lots of chocolate in the aroma and not much hippiness. Flavor is similar, quite sweet not very bitter and full bodied. I’m thinking they were shooting for more attenuation and more IBUs. This is more like a hoppy sweet stout. Not bAd though

On tap at crooked fence barrel house. Pours out black topped with a tan head. Nose is roast malts bitter hops and some ashtray. Taste is as the nose with lots of bitter grapefruit and dark malts. This was not good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark and roasty, on tap at CF taproom. Black with thin beige head, elements of fresh ground coffee and chocolate, wood and burnt toast. Short finish, but high ABV makes this a sipper.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to some kind soul. Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head. A big roast and dank hoppy nose. The flavor was more toward the dark side with chocolates and roast, some cocoa, but robust fruity hops, lingering bitterness in the finish. Good.
