3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On nitro at the Karben4 brewery/brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours an opaque brown colored brew with a decent-sized, creamy beige nitro head the really sticks with the glass. Aroma of dark dry black malt, some coffee presence and a touch of caffine-like bitterness. Taste has more coffee flavor than detected in aroma, along with a dry stout base and mild bitterness. Finish is nitro smooth with a mild short bitterness followed by chocolate, coffee and some earthy dry dark malt aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Karben4 Brewery. Rich, dark chocolate and grounded dark roast coffee in the aroma. It smells like I put my nose into a bag of freshly ground coffee beans. Black appearance, thin in consistency, not very viscous. Little to no head. Tastes as rich ad it smells with coffee and chocolate dominating. Extra smooth and easy to drink. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Dessert-like. This was my favorite selection they had on tap in the brewery.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Dexter's Pub. Pours deep black with an off white head. Aroma is roasted coffee and malt. Taste is the same deep coffee flavor and lots of malt. Medium bodied and not missing the lack of hops at all. This has a lingering coffee flavor. Very good

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Dexters, pours a very dark brown almost black with a thin light brown head and a little bit of lacing, the aroma is of straight coffee with chocolate, smells awesome, I thought it would be hard to live up to the aroma, and I was right, but it wasn’t bad by any means. Flavor has a nice chocolate front end with some dark malts and bitterness of coffee in the finish, came through on the nose much more than the flavor, but still solid.
