Super dark brown pour, brown head. Interesting beer. Tropical fruits and stout. Not a combo of flavors that I expected to work, but it does. Chocolate, roast, oranges, mango notes...finishes a bit dry. GABF pour.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
GABF 2013. Pours a brownish black appearance with a thin brown head. Slight veggie, dark chocolate, tangy, a touch fruity aroma. A bit woody, chewy bready, roasted malty flavor. I got some veggie/woody notes in the aroma and flavor that kind of turned me off, but I appear to be the exception. Hope to try it again in the future and update this rating.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask Conditioned @ brewpub: Pours opaque with a creamy beige head and very good lace. The aroma has roasted, chocolate, charred, tangerine, mango, pink grapefruit, piney and herbal esters. The taste is moderately citrus and tropical fruit over layer of roasted coffee and bittersweet cocoa. Some pine, herbs and earthy ash as well. The mouth feel is smooth and moderate bodied with a slightly ashy and metallic finish. A nice hoppy stout that is borderline on a Black IPA.
