3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft taster at Great River. Proclaims itself a milk stout, but retains a light roast coffee smell. Black stout body. Some burnt coffee and mocha in the nose and in the palate, more than one should find in a milk stout, at least in my humble opinion. It is well-made, and worth a look from anybody. Just a brewerís choice that I personally cantís follow along with.

5/13/10. On tap at the brewpub in an English pub glass. The pour is opaque black with a very small caramel brown head that fades to nothing fast. The aroma is straight roasted malts with some meat, tobacco, salt, and smoke. The flavor is much the same.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black with a small tan head. Roasted nuts, chocolate, toffee, and coffee aroma. Flavor is sweet chocolate, toasted coconut, toffee, almonds, and vanilla. Finishes on the sweet side. If you like dessert beers this might work, but isnít quite boozy enough to fit in that category for ne. Still decent.
