3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
We’ve had better stouts, but this one’s not bad at all. Probably wouldn’t buy this but certainly would accept it from a friend...or an enemy.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Raleigh Times.
Poured a dark brown, almost black. Faint aromas of cocoa and coffee. Taste is anything but faint (and not in a good way). Tastes of a decent stout that has simply had cocoa powder mixed in.
Kind of disappointing as I am a big fan of choc stouts. Might be a bit better aged a year or two.

Opaque black pour with one finger of dark tan head. Lots of chocolate in the aroma. Very very very Yoo Hoo ish. Graham cracker and light caramel notes show as well. Very very singular and chocolatey to a fault. Medium full body with a very light carbonation.

Draught. Hot damn this is awesome... Pours a near-black color with a thick tan head on it. Nose is very roasty and inviting. Taste is actually slightly sweet, which surprised me after the nose. I got some decent cocoa notes as well as the roasting coming through in the taste as well. Very smooth. I like this one.
