3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served from a tap into a pint glass. Pours a dark black color with a dark tan head that doesn’t last too long. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate with coffee as well. Taste is heavy on the roasted malt with an undertone of coffee and chocolate. Subtle taste of bitter alcohol but a little light on the back end. Also a little light on the mouthfeel. Overall a solid stout.
