3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
nitro tap at the brewpub last summer - Pours near black with a lasting light tan head. It smells of chocolate malt. The flavor is roast chocolate malt with a touch of bitterness. The nitro gives the expected creamy mouthfeel for this medium bodied beer. I liked it.

On tap at brewpub. Thin black appearance with tan nitrogen head. What would have been a solid brew instead came out watered down in nearly every category, including mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery pours a dark brown almost black color with a creamy tan head from the nitro. Light chocolate, roast, and touch of coffee in the aroma. Sweet malt flavors chocolate that’s smooth from the nitro. Lingering sweetness, kinda weak but ok.
