3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap at the brewpub - Pours block with a one finger tan head. The aroma is of roast malt and licorice. The flavor has coffee and licorice notes and the finish is fairly dry. The body is thicker than Labrador’s Irish Stout, making this a robust beer, as a stout should be. Good beer.
