A creamy but somewhat off aroma. This is only okay. More creamy than dry, this beer doesn’t match up to the rest of their beers.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose is dark and roasty with a hint of burnt malts and lightly tart. Pours dark brown, more or less black with a huge creamy tan head. The flavor is roasty and burnt with a subtle light sweetness and a hint of tartness from the portion of sour mash. Easy drinking yet flavorful. Smooth carbonation. Rather enjoyable IMO.

Tap. Dark black pour, 1/4 inch cookie colored head with a distinct peat aroma. Flavor was very smoky peat, chocolate and was creamy and lasting on the finish. Very good beer, I could see this pairing very well with BBQ.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at RnH. Dry, chalky, thin and cabonic nose. Medium bodied, sloppy, carbonic and chalky flavor. Easy drinking. I am a big fan of the style (and the brewer) but this is just not well done at all.

Rattle’n’Hum: Pours a very dark brown, very little to no head, very little carbonation. Aroma was very hard to catch, very faint. Obvious coffee, some bitters but overall very watery.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ RnH. Notes of smoky coffee and slight bacon, flavor is there but palate is far too thin for a stout IMO.
