3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown, almost black with an ample tan head. Aroma was a bit strong at first, but pleasant of roasted maltiness. Tastes of malts, roastiness, and a decent bitterness. Creamy, yet thin on the body. Overall, it was good, but not great/

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap Very dark but clear with a nice modest crealmy tan head and even sheeting lacing. Aroma is quite mild. Light smokey dark malts. Flavor is subtle as well. Dark pitted fruits and grapes are involved but nothing jumps out at you. I wouldn’t say borning, but not special either. I thought the body was a bit thin. Finishes clean with the expected bitterness at the end.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black, almost opaqe yet there was some light coming through. Brownish head and nice sheeting lace. Chocolate and coffee aromas, slight hops. Bam! Big malts and hops take you by surprise. The coffee comes out a lot more in the flavors. Hops are nice and bitter. Thick, creamy body and palate, with a big bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with ruby edges of a filtered stout. The head is impressive with dark tan hues and good lacing until the end of the glass. The aroma is full of hops and chocolates, dark fruits; raisin, cherry, plum. Flavor is initially lightly bitter from the large amounts of bittering hops in this stout but finishes with a terrific roasted coffee essence. The mouthfeel stings a bit for a stout, very dry finish, slightly astringant. This was a good stout from a solid local brewpub, lots of bitter hops and dark fruits dominate this beer with a foundation of traditional stout flavors.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yawn! A very typical boring stout, that tastes just like every other stout out there. YOur typical, coffee and chocolate flavorings are present, but this one cannot decide if it wants to be a porter or a stout. Creamy and rich, but vague.
