3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub. Strong coffee in the nose, roasty and huge, with lighter notes of chocolate, citrus, hop spice and dark caramel. Dark brown/black color with a fine, lasting head and good lacing. Flavor is rather complex, roasty, sweet, coffeeish and toasty, well-hopped with bitter, floral, fruity and piney hops, along with lighter touches of espresso and raisin. Dries out substantially towards the finish. Palate is well-carbonated and leaving a mostly dry feel, body is medium-full. Very powerful coffee aspect, but good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler shared by beastiefan2k. Pour is a black ruby with a two inch light tan head. Aroma is fresh coffee, roasty, some creamy cocoa sweetness. Taste is a bit less fresh coffee than the nose, a bit of roast, and the sweetness of the cream from the nose. Finish lingers with somewhat stale coffee. Palate is medium bodied, thins out a bit in the finish. Lingers with the coffee roast. Nice drinking stout, thanks for grabbing this and sharing it Eugene.
