Draft. A black beer with a red shine under a brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, wort, and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt lending it a slight acidity, combined with a note of chocolate, leading to a dry and roasted finish.

On tap at the brewpub (aka Black River Stout). Pours opaque black with a decent tan head and a chocolate and treacle aroma. There is a dark malt flavor that is a bit too thin for a stout. However, a decent brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Black with a lasting nitro head. Dry and ashy on the nose, a little like french roast coffee. Dry flavor, quite roasty, a touch ashy, and tangy in the finish. Nice bitter chocolate character. Light bodied but with a surprisingly lively body considering the ubiquitous nitro conditioning. A definitely a solid dry stout that still presents well on nitro.
