3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted 8/15/10. Sampler from the Brewpub. Dark with an opaque brown hue. Thick ring of khaki head. Aromas of coffee, dark chocolate and mild cocoa. Good nose! Medium to full bodied with a ton of dark chocolate in the flavor category. Followed by a good blast of coffee. Toasty with a great burnt malt flavor. Good body and a great roast! Toasty and dry. The chocolate aspect dominates the palate, but the other flavors really contribute to enhance the overall superb palate! Solid stout!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Milwaukee Ale House in Grafton. Dark brown with ruby lowlights and a thick creamy nitro formed head that lasts for a long time. Aroma of heavily roasted malts, coffee and oatmeal. Taste of roasted malts comprised of chocolate and coffee flavors. The sweetness of the oatmeal comes through and the finish is a nice balance of residual sweetness and roasted malt bitterness. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
aroma is filthy, rich java, old dirty coffee cups. pleasant despite expected meaning of my simile. appearance is opaque, heavy ring of foam with nice oil slick head as well. flavor is dirty java, good oats. turns bitter in time killing with little cocoa exists and java departs. mouthfeel is a bit thin and slippery for style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I am not sure what the big deal is with this ordinary stout. Black with a small layer of foram. Aroma is heavily roasted malt, with light traces of coffee and oatmeal, with burnt popcorn. Flavor is of bitter grain also, no perceivable hops. It is drinkable enough, but perhaps they went to far with the malting. Good, full palate.

Nitro pour. Pours pitch black with a medium creamy off-white head. Aroma is malty, with some dark roasts. Taste is about the same, but very creamy........nothing really complicated going on, just your no-frills stout.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark black opaque colour, with a nice full tan head. Aroma is very strong of coffee and roasted malts. Initial taste is heavy, dark roasted malt character, almost chewy- it quickly smoothes out nicely, finishes with a taste that is sort of similar to cold hot chocolate.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice mix of an Irish dry and an oatmeal stout. Beautiful deep mahogany hue and thick tan foam head. Strong roasted malts flavor, some chocolate in there. One of the better stouts I’ve had and what makes it better is the fact that Ale House keeps it in constant supply. A great stand-by.
