3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the Gallows, 2/6/16.
Nitrogenated pour shows a typical large, beige head with strong retention atop a deep ebony body of indeterminable clarity.
Light milk chocolate, dusty cocoa, earthy/crunchy roasted coffee notes and very soft vanilla all give a very standard interpretation of the style. As per nitrogen, not a ton of aroma, but what’s there is dark and roasty, so you get the idea.
Wet, loose, somewhat creamy mouthfeel at times with a very drinkable, dry, well-attenuated body. Cocoa, coffee, light vanilla and a touch of cream and honey all end with dark chocolate and more earthy, dry roast. Love the abv on it and could easily drink this stuff all day.

On tap at Yardhouse. An almost opaque brown with a very creamy and well sustaining head with excellent lacing. Aroma has a light sweetness with oats, light roast and a little cocoa. Taste follows the nose with light roastiness and oats with a cocoa dusted nuttiness and very mild roasted bitterness. Finished mostly dry. Mouthfeel semi creamy with a medium body and soft nitro carbonation. Solid and sessionable with simple but satisfying flavor.
