4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro version on tap into a whiskey glass showing a lot of coffee translucency and slightly tanned white foam.
The nose shows mostly light coffee with a hint of adzuki bean sweetness.
The palate is smooth and light bodied with sligh adzuki bean sweetness on the mid palate and a slight coffee tartness. Flavors of light coffee and dark chocolate bitterness well paced throughout. This is a surprisingly drinkable stout.

On tap and on nitro at Modern Times brewery in San Diego. Deep black color and cascading beige head. Aroma of cocoa dust, coffee, smoke and chocolate. Flavor is coffee forward with smoked malt and light sweetness. Velvety soft palate. All around a great small stout that's really easy to drink. Awesome.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz can.
More coffee in the nose than in the flavor, but even here it doesn’t mask the underlying stout.
Smooth, medium full body. Medium-low carbonation.
Good bitter sweet balance leans towards the bitter side.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is too good to be served in tall boy cans. That was my first thought at tasting this. This is the beer where, if you were a kid and you tried this you’d wonder what the hell was wrong with adults, how they could drink this. This stuff is levels of intense-ness.
Aroma is deep coffee, earth, yet citrus and grass linger too. Taste is the same, huge, HUGE bitter and dry aftertaste, caramel, chocolate, coffee, nuts, toast, leather, woody, it’s all represented here.
I drank it from the can but next time it’s going in a glass so I can see it.
