Dark and malty but that’s about it. Pales in comparison to some of the other dark beers on tap at the brewery this day.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery. They didn’t say it was on nitro, but it sure tasted like it. Poured deep black with a small tan head that faded almost immediately. Aroma of roast, chocolate and a lactic note. Flavor was light roast and chocolate, dark malts. Mouthfeel was extremely thin and it finished very dry. Okay, but too thin in the mouth for my personal tastes.

4oz sample at Full Sail Hood River - Nitro - Aroma has lots of roasted dark malts, chocolate and milky. Flavor matches but is lactic. Palate is creamy and thin. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Full sail in Hood River. Colour... black with a thin tan head. Nose... roasted malt and gentle hops. Palate... nicely dry, yet coating, light hops, roasty malt and a delightfully dry finish. Dead ringer for a dry irish stout. Well done!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Roasted malt with hints of chocolate. Black, opaque pour with tiny bubbly taupe head. Roasted graininess begins, followed by a bittersweet chocolate. Bitterness is moderate. Creamy pour from nitro, but also makes the body seem lighter. Sessionable stout.
