3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma chocolate jet black color with tan head and lacing. Taste is dry, but not as dry as a Guinness. Best at granite city, but even this was a middle of the road stout. Very low hops, chocolate and very low sweetness. Would have again though

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
TAP. This beer is a bit more watery that Guinness. It tastes of oats and chocolate, and slightly of burnt wood. Smooth mouthfeel from the nitro.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at GC Rockford. Pours dark black with a small bit of dark head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste if medium bitter. Lots of coffee and some dark bitter chocolate. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Soft carbonation and a long finish. Overall, pretty good. The only GC beer I’d bring home a growler of.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on tap at brewpub, St Louis, Missouri, USA in standard pint glass. Opaque black color with thick, creamy beige head. Some head retention, little lace. True-to-style aromas and flavors. Balanced hops bitterness. Dark and thick. Fruity ale fermentation. Lingering bittersweet aftertaste. Tasty but unmemorable.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Tap. Nice dark brown/black pour with a nice foamy cream head. Really nice chocolate and coffee aroma. Palate is impossibly thin - kills this beer. Taste is watery with similar elements as aroma.
