4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. on tap at the brewpub. Opaque ebony with a film of cream on top. Aroma of semi-sweet chocolate, caramel and espresso with cream. Flavors of chocolate, coffee, a hint of blackberry and toffee. Medium plus body is smooth with near-medium carbonation and a dessert beer slant, but never gets sticky.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. This is a thick and roasty stout without a whole lot of flavor dynamic. But good enough all the same.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Comes out of the tap a rich coffee brown with a decent buttery-tan head. Scrumptious aroma has vanilla, roast malt, coffee, semi-sweet chocolate and toffee notes. Gets me salivating like one of Pavlov’s dogs! Flavor delights with coffee, vanilla, roast malt, toffee and subtle molasses notes. Texture is fairly firm and quite fizzy. Delicious almost to the max!

What can you say about this award winning beer. Chocolate, coffee...pours thick and dark like espresso. One of my favorite beers. If you like Avery’s Yeti or Lagunitas Espresso Stout this one is for you. I wish I could buy this in cans or bottles!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler. Black pour. Aroma was rich milk chocolate mixed with a deep roasted malt character. Very nice. Flavors were heavily roasted with subtle nuances of cocoa and vanilla, lightly sweet. Finish was bittersweet, lingered nicely. Body was creamy and full, not too shabby!
