UPDATED: NOV 17, 2012 Brown with tan head. Smoke, chocolate, and cappucino, with salt notes. Creamy but not heavy. Definitely one to keep an eye out for. I know of no better dark beer in Wisconsin.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Near black with a thick mocha colored head. Smells smokey, like peat, tabacco, dry, and roasted malts. Mild sweetness that is dry and quickly fades. Medium body with a creaminess. Decent, would go great with a cigar or a steak.

On tap at Old Fashioned, pours black with a thin tan head, the aroma has a good amount of milk chocolate and some caramel, the flavor has a bitterness of chocolate on the front end with a hop kick in the finish, overall pretty balanced and nice.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Old Fashioned in Madison, WI., and dispensed to a shaker a little on the cold side, with an opaque, black/brown color, cream & bubbles, brownish tan head foam, and impressive, curtainy lacing. The aroma was roasty, some woodiness and char, maybe a little creamy flake, and earthy, barnyard scent. The flavor was similar, and contributed a lingering, medium hop bitterness, and an additional leathery character. The body was medium+, and the finale was bitter and dry. Interesting recipe, but for me, it was a little difficult to finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours rich and velvetty with a tall dense mocha head.
Aroama is rich and malty with nuiances of earthy peat at the end.
A good tasting stout with a big dose of roasted malts and smokey peat.
Smooth and semi dry finish. Me likes.

Nice roast with distinct peat. Black.with white brown head. Interesting roast with an immediate pea5 coming through. Nice creamy and dry. Very good. Favorite for style for me. Good chocolate in flavor and nose.
