3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, poured into a nonic glass. The aroma is fresh coffee and dark fruit with an emerging baking chocolate. The beer is dark and rich with a near opaque, caramel brown hue and a tan, creamy-doughy head that has moderate retention, and good, snowy lace. The taste is medium high sweet and medium bitter. The creamy texture has a thin creamy fuzz for carbonation, and a medium full body. The palate profile is brownies and oatmeal with a roasty finish that cleans quickly leaving an aftertaste that has a mild hoppy cleanse followed by lightly cloying baker chocolate that lingers.

Draft. Pours black with creamy tan head. Aroma is real nutty with dark chocolate, caramelly too. Flavors prickly carbonation right off the bat, with some nutty cocoa gojng on, finishes dry. Med body. Good stuff, maybe just needs to tone down the carbonation.

Cask. This one is uncarbonated and warm which lends itself to chugging. This is one o those stouts that kind of ends up in the middle of them all style-wise.
