4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
How have I not rated this before? Black-brown with 2mm light-brown, super-fine, yet frothy head that fades slowly. Aroma is coffee, toast, dark chocolate, milk, some herbs with a hint of mint. Body is oily, somewhat syrupy, fine light carbonation with no burn. Flavor is a giant roastedness with bits of coffee, wood, light bbq, leather. Semi-sweet malt, refreshing grasses. Really very delicious.

Nitro-labeled bottle, served in tulip glass. Sweet chocolate aroma, almost black with creamy tan head. Milk chocolate and toffee flavor, thin-bodied. Medium finish, not cloying. Better to let it warm a bit. Not enough body for my stout preferences, but quite good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Very dark brown with a tan skim of a head. Smells of coffee, dark chocolate, and smoke. Heavy body, medium-high carbonation, and creamy texture. I get a lot of chocolate and coffee flavor. It is sweet but nicely balanced with some subtle bitterness. Really nice overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, black beer with almond colored head. Aroma is dried plum, rootbeer, coffee. Taste is sweet stout, hints of raisin, toasted barley, coffee. This is sweet, but not cloying. Palate is a bit thin, carbonation subdued.
Ok, drinking nitro version immediately after, and it seems like a different beer! Taste is more milk chocolate and cappuccino. Palate is a little thinner, but carbonation is soft as a cloud! I definitely precise the nitro version!

I do love a good stout and thus is a classic of the style. Very smooth. Slightly sweet. Moderate roast. Opaque with good lacing.
