2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Hawthorne location - black pour with a sticky tan lace - a very slight mouthfeel - medium body - I have never tasted so much diacetyl in a stout before - very buttery - this overcomes the more pleasant notes of bittersweet chocolate and roast - lightly bitter finish, with lingering butter - meh.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours coal black with a light brown head. Has a malted chocolate aroma. This is a dry, but also a milky stout. It’s smooth with great thickness on a solid palate. The thick lacing walls the glass. I detect a really nice licorice flavor as well. This beer lies in the midpoint between a dry and a sweet stout.
