3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster at the brewery. Looks good; black with light beige lacing. Smells and tastes sweet and roasty with a heavy dark malt presence. Average on the palate. Solid beer.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Draft, in a flight at the brewpub. Very odd, off-putting aroma. Chemical even. First sip is equally awful. Sour, medicinal aspect with an ounce of anise. Clearly not a good effort here, or a flawed batch. Either way, bad way to top off an unimpressive visit. (#4949, 2/28/2013)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample. Poured black color with an average fizzy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium roasted coffee and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted sweet coffee flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good and my expectations where met.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice dark brown with a tan head. Nice aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Great roasted coffee bean taste with a creamy mouthfeel. Trends to the dry side. Well done.
