Dark black with about a half inch of head. Strong roasted malt aroma and flavor which gives it the characteristic dryness. Overall a very tasty beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nitro tap at Jupiter. Dark black, quarter-inch cream-colored head, leaving tons of lacing as nitro taps typically do. Dark chocolate, roasted malt, fine leather in the nose. The palate is super smooth. The finish is long-lasting. The taste is mostly sweet with dark chocolate, a touch of espresso and finishing with a light and dry earthy bitterness. This is a wonderful and flavorful stout. Nicely balanced. Enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Jupiter. Not quite there stylistically. Nose is on the grainy side and very plain. Tastes of cheap coffee and stingy chocolate. Doesn’t unify well, ends abruptly and is kind of boring.
