3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(On tap) Completely black and opaque with a light brown head leaving a solid lacing. Aroma of burned malts with a smoky edge. Fairly full-bodied with fat, burned - almost tar-like - malts. Flavours of licorice, tobacco, coffee - the works! Some malty bitterness in the finish. A very rich, rewarding and complex stout. I really wouldn’t call it a Sweet Stout though. 210307

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep and dark like a stout should be. Coffee being the primary. Nice dry finish and a really good stout. If you like a dark beer, this and the porter were my favorites there.

Draught at the brewpub. Opaque, black with a tan head. Smelled of coffee and anise. Dry on the tongue with a roasty flavor accented by dark chocolate. Roasty and bitter at the end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with an off-white head. Outstanding and complex finish that I really can’t identify. Has all the requisite flavors of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. I drank this while eating Hama Oysters and it was awesome.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Near black with light chocolate aroma. Chewy, fudgey but a bit harsh on the black malt bitterness. Alcohol creeps in late as well. All over the bloody place.
