tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Draught at Cedar Rapids. Pours brown-black with almost no head (what head I can stir up is beige). The aroma is rich mocha, some vanilla, wood, and a bit of a boggy note. The flavor is bitter chocolate with forward roastiness. More earthy hop bitterness than I expected. Caramel and pine in the finish.

2004 ABR. Did not finish the Autumn Brew Review off on a good note. Smells like milk chocolate. Appearance is lacking. No lace, no head. Looks like diarrhea. Flavor isn’t good either. Looked and tasted flat.

Draft at East Peoria. Pours black with a beige head. Milky and roasty aroma. Medium bodied with average carbonation, but thin in texture. Pretty basic dry stout with flavors of dark roasted malts and spent coffee grounds.
