Sickeningly sticky beer. An incredible amount of caramel and butter in what should be a beer dominated by its chocolate or coffee roastiness. I had trouble finishing it.

Had this beer every time I have visited the brewpub and its never been off, which is something very special for this brewery. Looks great off nitro, adds a thickness to the mouthfeel I don’t get much from their other beer. Plenty of roast a unsweetened cocoa and all very drinkable. If you only get one beer here make it this one.

Pours black with frothy tall nitro head. Smell is smooth and slightly sweet. Taste is mild, very light body, light sweet stout with light creamy well blended malt bill. Slightly dry bittering finish with a touch of coffee. Enjoyable overall

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2008 4 oz taster at the brewpub. Pour is all black with a well formed and retentive tan nitro head. Aroma of slightly sour malt and some coffee roast. Taste is coffee roastiness, some mild vanilla sweetness and milkiness. Palate seems a bit flat, that’s probably the nitro. This was decent, though.
