4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Classic chocolate, coffee bean, vanilla, light caramel smell, the smell is incredible! Dark as night appearance, you sure can taste the 60 IBU’s, you can also taste the oats, expected a little more sweetness, great coffee aftertaste.
I finally got to taste this beer being in California, it’s extremely hard to get, but have to say it’s not the best stout out there. Never had KBS and I hear it is incredible, but I would certainly rate Speedway’s stout better than this. Great stout but not what all the hype is about.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Stout nera e densa, con sentori di cacao amaro, fondi di caffè e cereali. Gusto mediamente tostato e non particolarmente dolce, per nulla sciropposo; corpo medio ma meno rotondo dell’atteso. Banalotta... Mi aspettavo decisamente di più, l’equilibrio c’è ma manca l’intensità.

I had it on tap. It pours an almost black color with a tan head and little lacing. The aroma is coffee and chocolate. The taste is coffee, chocolate, vanilla, sugary milk, and some alcohol. It’s balanced well. It’s pretty smooth with a bit of carbonation. This is very good.
