3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Kansas City location. Pours thin and black with a white head. Flavor isn’t bad, with malts and cocoa. Overall, not as offensive as some of their other beers. A solid light and thin stout that could be sessioned.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap, Maumee OH location. Pours a dark brown, almost black., body with a small creamy dark brown nitro head that left some thick lacing. Roasty and dry with a bit of coffee on the nose. The flavor is thin and a little too astringent with a heavy malt bitterness. More like a cold cup of day old coffee than a beer. The mouth feel is thin and nitro’d with a fairly watery finish. Not too much positive to say about this guy, it looked and smelled pretty decent, but it went downhill from there.

A bit more mild than your average stout. Not as hoppy as I would expect, either. But this one is very smooth, and what it lacks in flavor, it makes up for in refreshment.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thick creamy light brown head, dark brown in color, faint coffee aroma with a slight coffee/chocolate flavor. Thin, watery mouthfeel and not much of a finish. Not bad for someone getting into stouts but doesn’t stand up to the better ones.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A black beer with a creamy tan head that lasts as long as you want it to. Coffee, toffee, and thin roasy malt nose. Flavor is bitter and dry and dominated by light cofee and chocolate taste. Texture is smooth and creamy. There is not much of an aftertaste for a beer of this stature, but what is there reminds me of toasty, chocolate malt.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I hate this place, but when one came to town, I had to try all the beers. They’re all average to bad. This one tastes like water mixed with a teaspoon of old coffee grinds.
