3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an inky black color with a frothy, dark tan, long lasting head. The aroma has lots of coffee that is complimented with vanilla. It is very robust. The taste remains big on coffee that goes along with probably an equal dosage of chocolate. Vanilla is present throughout. Aftertaste is coffee and lingers for awhile. Medium in body with a creamy creamy, yet a little bit of oily texture. Very soft in carbonation. This one is pretty straightforward with what it offers. But it is done well and is very easy to enjoy if you like stouts.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Was stoked to hear that these guys have finally arrived in the Chicago market. Anyways... this one pours a gorgeous, stouty brownish-black with a massive Jamocha-shake colored head with unparalleled retention (think Guinness the way they serve it in Dublin), wicked lacing. Nose is roasty with some cocoa and hint of that vanilla -- but itís kinda hard to detect it underneath this snowdrift like head. Mouth is medium-full bodied and velvety, but surprisingly dry, with coffee, roasted barley, some vanilla, licorice and bakers chocolate, a fair degree of bitterness and a hint of ash on the back end. Nice hearty beer for this shitty rainy November eve in the Midwest.

(Bottle). Pours a black brown complexion with tan head and lacing. A rich malty stout with nice coffee and cocoa flavor. Well balanced. A solid stout but less than exceptional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
