3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a rich sable with a very thick, fine-bubbled tan head, very Guinness-like. Aroma has strong, mouth-watering tones of roast malt mad molasses with a hint of coffee. Flavor echoes the roast malt and coffee tones of e aroma, though not as strongly, and adds a snip of caramel. Texture is fairly smooth and thick, dusty and not too fizzy. If not Guinness, still a good brew.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Barracuda Tavern, Boston. Not much nose at all on this, though it looked the goods, a tar black body topped with a creamy head of whipped cream. Palate was surprisingly thin, and quite dry. Flavors of dark chocolate, rich dark malt, and espresso. A bit hoppy in the finish? A little underwhelmed by this, probably because it was a surprise, but still went down nice with my lobster roll.
