3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2012 Inky. Dry, pencil shavings and roast aroma. Tangy, threatens to go coffee-acidic but relents. Medium to slightly light body. Faint bitter chocolate. Smooth coffee finish. Pretty decent. On tap, at the brewpub.

Pours very dark, with deep red edges and a rocky light tan head. The aroma is coffee, earthy spicy hops and a slight touch of chocolate. Taste is sweet caramel malts with a slightly roasted note, with bitter chocolate, hickory and smooth coffee. Medium bodied and a very drinkable stout.

Draft at the brewery. Dark brown almost black with a short head and a little lacing. Very slight aroma of chocolate malt. Good mouth feel. I thought the hop/malt mixture very good for a dry stout. Very drinkable.

Had a sample at the brewpub, then bought a growler to go.
Took it back to my room, let it chill a bit (it was 90+ out), and then poured into both a pint and a rocks glass. Interesting exploration followed, with a tantalizing beginning. My senses were piqued by the head, with minimal lace. Strong finish left me wanting more, and thinking about this one for days afterward. A nice climax to a very enjoyable trip to the South. Hoping I can experience this one again, just need to figure out a way to get over there.

Columbia, SC- In a growler. Nice mellow head, with little lacing. Wonderful mixture of soft coffee and strong smokiness. Enjoyable drink that stays with you. Smooth finish, very smooth. Iíll take a growler to go.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Columbia, SC- On tap at the brewpub - Pours a dark ruby red with a light off-white creamy head. Slightly sweet coffee aroma and a touch of ripening fruit. Flavor has some nice chocolate elements to add to the coffee roastiness wihth a back end of wine. Mouthfeel - decently thick, overall a very decent brewpub stout.

Draught. Pours a super-deep opaque red with a small tan head. The nose sports toasted oats, coffee, and some faint DMS. Thereís solid soy sauce in flavor, tart nuttiness, and sparkling, acidic coffee notes. The finish is dense of hearty oats with chocolate overtones and is slightly drying. A pretty decent bitter stout. Well done.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark black pour, small beige head. Chocolate and coffee come through but then leave a dry chalky and irony aftertaste. Another beer from them thatís overloaded with hops and is too bitter.
