4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed on cask at Goose Island Clybourn in Chicago, IL while killing time waiting for parking to run out. Great stop over beer! Appearance is pitch black, moderate thickness, huge frothy off white head. Aroma is rich in citrus notes, smells more like an IPA than a stout, not much chocolate aroma. Taste goes down smooth and lightly dry, roasted chocolate notes in the flavor, also a bit of pine and citrus, pretty good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the source... Cola consistency with less intense edges and topped with a medium beige head and lesser intense deeper red edges... Heavy roasted malt, cocoa, and citrusy hop aromatics in the nose. Nice... Flavors are more of the same with cocoa, roast, and green citrus hop component intermingling with the aforementioned. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Not too big with a decent profile throughout.
