2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2007 Dark black with a tan head that hung around for awhile. Aroma of malt, hops, roasted coffee beans. Flavor was similar but with added bitterness on the finish. Overall, the aroma and flavor were not strong and not very memorable. For a chain restaurant that is surely limited by what they are able to brew and the amount of creativity that goes into the brew, Broadaxe Stout does an average job. As a stout goes, again, average.

Tap: Pours a nearly black dark brown and is capped by a modest yet sustained tan head. The aroma’s fairly light for any type of stout, but it’s come some bittersweet chocolate and roasted coffee there if you sniff hard enough. A bit thin, but has a flavor of roasted malt & barley, coffee, chocolate, and some nuts. Dry finish.

Draft at Cedar Rapids. With not too many micros to choose from in Iowa, I hate to knock any stout effort too strongly, but there’s just nothing remarkable about this beer. I do drink it fairly often because we frequent this location. Aroma and flavor are somewhat bland. Not unpleasant, just not much of it.

Tap, Omaha. Dark brown color with a thin, light beige head. Roasted malt, coffee and hints of caramel and dark chocolate aromas. Thin in feel. Some roasted malt and coffee in the flavors. Seems more like a dunkel than a stout, with the thin body. Drinkable dark brew.

A bit on the thin side with a roasty nose with light chocolate notes. A bit of tartness and smokiness in the finish is welcome. Pours deep brown with a good sticky creamy head.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2005 Maple Grove, MN: nice dark color with medium creamy head. Faint smell of coffee and chocolate. Seemed a bit thin and flat. Coffee and a hint of chocolate flavor lingered for a while but there just didn’t seem to be much to it.

Sampled at the Cedar Rapids branch. Thick slightly tan head with a black body. The nose os milk chocolate with coffee and amaretto. The taste is slightly bitter with milk chocolate and dried apples. Too much hops for the style. Unbalanced with a thin body.

A disappointing stout. Good color but no body to go along with the notes of chocolate malt and hops.

On tap in Omaha NE. Very dark brown color with a medium amount of head. Slight aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Not much of a stout; flavor was very mild and very poor mouthfeel. Slight taste of chocolate and malt. Somewhat too watery. Scored a little higher than desrved but it is a stout nonetheless.
