3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the pub. The menu called it "Sweet Stout" but the tap handle said "Stout." Thick, foamy brown head over a dark beer. Sweet malty grain nose. Lots of caramel, roasted grains and bitter chocolate with a long buttered burnt toast finish. As it warmed the sweetness almost moved towards table sugar. Very easy drinking stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery, I was told by the server that this was 5.5% alcohol, has a brown-black pour with an off-white head, has a nice presentation, left lots of lacing on the glass, aroma of roasted malt and dark malt grains, some dry chocolate and coffee, faint dark fruit, flavor of roasted malt, dry chocolate, small hop bite with roasted malt bitterness, faint licorice, has a medium mouth feel or a bit more, and a touch of creaminess. A very drinkable stout, you could gulp this stuff, this stout did not come across as a strong and bold black stout and does not have a lot of the dark roasted malt flavor found in many stouts but this may be a good stout to introduce to a newby or a friend to the dark side of beers.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
draft at brewpub. dark brown color, tan head. coffee, roast aroma. oatmealy smooth roast body that practically rivals bell’s kalamazoo stout. i would classify this as a sweet stout, not just ’stout’. too thin to be world-class, but excellent aside from mouthfeel.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a large sized head of light brown colored long lasting finely sized bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body was a nearly opaque dark brown color. The aroma was a mild brown malty one that was very hard to detect. It had a smooth somewhat flat mouth feel that was slightly off. The flavor was acidic and mixed with brown malts.
