3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Heartland Bar in the Sheraton Madison, WI., dispensed to a shaker displaying a black/brown color, with a frothy layer of tan head foam, and waves, spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was malty and nicely creamy, but not heavily roasted, with chocolate, moderate coffee, some caramel sweetness, and subtle hints of spice, herbs, and greenery. Medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste added a roasted & earthy bitterness that expressed some dryness into the finish. Described as an Organic Coffee Stout, and a Sweet Stout here, but only a moderate amount of both were presented. Not overly robust, but flavorful, nonetheless.
