3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: toasty malts, a good dose of roast malts and coffee, really a mix of dry stout and mild in the nose. Pours black, almost opaque, but some light can get through around the edges and cast light reddish hues, off-white head dissipates somewhat quickly, spotty lacing. Flavor: nice and bready/toasty, mellow roast character, light bitterness, dry finish. Medium body, low-medium carbonation. Very easy drinking and enjoyable brew, nice!

On tap at the Faction Ales for ALS festival. It pours a dark brown/black color with a tan head. The aroma is nice and balanced with some bread, roasted malt, cocoa and light notes of fig and raisin. The flavor has big roast, a little anise and burnt toast. Mildly acidic and light bodied. A nice mild ale, but a bit too acidic for me.

Pour on tap at the brewery, brownish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of roast, nuts, dark fruits, coffee and dark cocoa as well, not bad. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, roast, coffee beans into a bit of caramel, toffee, hints of nutty notes, earth, finishing spicy and roasted. Pretty good.
