3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is coffee and molasses. A coffee flavor comes through for me along with chocolate. Lighter than I expected with a lot of sweetness from the malt. Just a little hop bite at the end. The roasted malt comes through as well, pretty smooth and overall very good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle on Rte. 8 in Pittsburgh. More harsh than smooth, the bitterness of this beer overwhelms any advertised silkiness. I would have liked a smoother and sweeter taste for this one.

Not bad. Decent smoky aroma and toasty flavor. Probably won't drink it again unless it's the only thing offered.

Lighter in color for a stout also with some odd spice notes. It changes from being really nice to really bad each passing drink.
