2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap in Cleveland (OH)
Another so-so impersonation of a stout mirrors the Mom’s Cookies. Any highlights are drowned in a sea of watery blandness. Save your time and money unless you want a cheap tick.
Aroma / Appearance - A black fluid base swirls limply around the glass. Thin bodied and watery the view alone inspires little confidence of a great memorable experience. Coffee and undercooked oatmeal have cheap smoky undertones like a smoking patio rinsed clean by a rain shower.
Flavor / Palate - Watery smoke and cheap coffee tease the palate with a promise of something better. If you took the bottom of the pot and added enough water to unstick it you’d have a good equivalent of this flavor profile. A half hearted release falls just short of average and isn’t worth more than two ounces at best.

Like a Guinness, but with a little funkiness. Not sure what it is. Maybe should be on nitro.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark black with a tan foam head. Has a roasty and chocolate aroma. Flavor is sweet chocolate, roasted malts, and even a little nutty taste. Towards the bottom of the pint glass there was a dirt/grass flavor that was unfortunate. Has a watery body feel. Otherwise not too bad.
