4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft to pint at Flip Daddy’s pour opaque black with thin tan head. Nose dark roast, coffee and chocolate. Taste good amount of dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, red fruit. Light bitter mid palate and chocolate roasted finish. Smooth mouth feel. Nice mix of sweet and coffee. Almost like one of those cheap French vanilla cappuccino.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at mellow mushroom. Very dead on for a Java stout - black pour with dark tan head that lasts. Coffee and cocoa and caramel notes throughout. Like the caffeine in there too. Ultra smooth with just a bit of bite on the back end.
Would be interesting as an imperial.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft: This was a very nice stout, but I didn’t think the coffee came through as much as I was hoping it would. I can’t say that I didn’t enjoy this though, as I most certainly did. Full of some big roasty flavors, perfect for the winter time. Can’t wait to try this again, and see if my palate picks up more coffee next time.
