On tap at O’Brien’s. Way too dry, though looks great lace sheet. OK, but not a fan of dry stout, you would think oatmeal would enhance it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Salted Pig, Riverside. Pours near black with red highlights. Good lacing. Jalapeño style green coffee nose with Moroccan dry cured black olive and Mikkeller RIS style tar. Aroma, as it warms, moves to 100% Tabasco sauce. Just straight up hot sauce. Taste is Mikkeller style RIS with heavy tar and industrial ash, sweet white alcohol, acidic coffee, more Tabasco sauce. Bizarre. Would receive a 1.8 from MrChopin and perhaps a 0.8 from 3fourths.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: lots of coffee, chocolate fudge and caramel, rich and roasty.
Appearance: jet black and mostly opaque, tan head with average retention and just a bit of lacing.
Taste: rich chocolate and plenty of coffee, molasses and caramel, toast and roasty malts, a bit of sweetness, fairly dry coffee finish, bitterness is mellow and lets the malt and coffee take center stage. Palate: medium to full body, low silky carbonation.
Overall: really nice coffee stout, I like that its a manageable abv, good balance.

Dark brown pour with a tan head. Roasted malt, tons of coffee, and a nice earthiness. Some nice toffee and molasses sweetness, chocolate, and maybe a bit of lactose. The flavor is nice and rich with tons of coffee, chocolate, and toffee. Molasses, some earthy notes, lots of roast, and a slight creaminess. Good mouthfeel, too.
