4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours dark brown to black with a one finger tan head that reduces to a collar. Aroma is wow, in your face espresso and chocolate, yummy. The taste is sweet and smooth, roasted chocolate malts, coffee, very little bitterness. Body is a little thin, I was expecting it to be mouth coating thick goodness, but it’s more on the light side similar to a porter. I dig it.

On tap at Capone’s. On Nitro. Dark brown pour with a smaller sized off white head. I would have put this as an oatmeal stout. Lots of oats, with chocolate, roast,wood, and some vanilla. Bitter chocolate in the finish.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A black beer here with a fairly tall tan head. The head is dense and mousse like. Nice contrast.
Aroma of rich roasted malts and coffee and chocolate. I didn’t pickup any oak barrels or whiskey in the nose.
Roasted malts are dominate in the taste not overpowering but just the first thing you taste upon first sip. Accent flavors includes coffee and bittersweet chocolate and suggestive hints of oak and spirits. Fuggle hops lend just a light bittering to this stoudt.
Mouthfeel is a bit thin for a stout but none the less it’s smooth and easy drinking. An excellent well made stout smooth and creamy with layers of flavor.
That being said, I would like to see the carbos pumped up a bit as well as an increase in head size for appearance purposes. I also think it’s a bit thin giving a washed down feel. As stated previous, I would drink this beer many more times... and with glee

Dark black with very little head in my ccb snifter. Very little head but lacing clings to the glass. Ara of coffee and sweet malts. Taste is smooth light with a coffee aftertaste. Mouth feel is surprisingly light and smooth, easy to drink and delicious
