3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Dark black with a light brown head. Nice lacing as the glass empties. Malt-heavy, molasses-rich aroma. Deep taste of tar, roasted malt and black liquorice. Thick mouthfeel. Tasty, well-rounded and complex, but a pint was more than enough.

Pours a lighter black with tan head. Nose is very sweet chocolate, almost a citrus berry scent. Taste is similar but very smooth. Very drinkable, very good lighter stout.

Pint on tap. Black bastard, opaque, beaut. Beautiful lacer, perfect head, fingers for days, aroma is appetizing and tantalizing, I couldn’t wait to have a sip. Strong AND smooth, phenomenal beer. I can’t say enough about this stout, for a basic stout, its the best one i’ve ever had.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Wegman’s Williamsport (thanks DiarmaidBHK!) - pours cola with a milk chocolate head. Aroma is on the piney, I’m not getting a ton of the malt character, other than the appearance. Overall, good, but too bitter for me.

bottle from Wegman’s Williamsport. pours black with a thin khaki head. leaves some lacing in the glass. kind of chocolaty on the nose. has a bit of hop tang on the tongue but the malt is subdued. finishes clean. Eh!
