3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this 2x. Once via a growler fill my son brought home, 2nd time via tap at the brew pub. Pretty impressive. Dark, clear, slightly reddish. Nice lacing pattern developed. Heavy roasted malt notes in the palate with a big bouquet of dark chocolate. Rich smoky palate also including plenty of toasted malt influence. A bit of coffee also. Very very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Brewhouse. Pours a dark brown with light brown head. Aroma of coffee, mocha, and chocolate. Flavor is incredibly smooth and well balanced between bitter and sweet, with coffee, cereal, and oatmeal. Great!
