3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
One finger of tan head with a dark brown body.
The smell is a strong roasted malt.
Taste is roasted malt and burnt coffee. A bit bold and one sided.
Fizzy texture but only moderate carbonation with medium body.
Overall it’s nice, but bold flavor profile.

Really unoffensive, but so normal. So basic. Like a thick albiet fresh coffee. A bit tart. I prefer it less so. Regardless, the beer to recommend.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint at the Kennedy School Boiler Room. It’s pitch black and doesn’t let any light through the glass. It has the traditional stout flavors of nuts and coffee. There was practically no discernible aroma, but that may have been the result of the tap pour. Overall this was a satisfying beer and I’d like to try more from McMenamin’s.

Black pour, moderate head. Aroma is mildly roasted. Flavor is also mildly roasty, but with hints of fruit. A decent stout.

Draught at Market St. Somewhat hoppy nose—cascade citrus, chocolate, berry. Nice. Shiny black with lace. Flavor of citrus hops, coffee, chocolate. A bit of band-aid that faded through the taster. Decent, especially after time.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks like a stout. Smells like a stout. Tastes like a stout. Not bad at all but there are much more interesting options out there than this generic offering.

As dark as you can get. Smells burnt. Sweet. Tan head. Bold. Well balanced. Pretty average stout, no flaws but not great.

Pours black with a tan head. Low coffee and roast aroma. Full mouthfeel with small but adequate carbonation. Flavor is roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. Not overwhelming but smooth. Finishes clean and well balanced.
