3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft and Cask (with cocoa nibs) at the brewery. Brown color with a tan head on draft and no head on cask. Strong coffee aroma on both, but the cocoa mellows the coffee for sure on the cask. Both are coffee and roast forward. Cask is a bit sweeter with less of a bitterness overall. Very smooth in both presentations. Enjoyed both. Rating is a compilation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
4oz on tap at the brewpub. Brown color. Minimal head. Good chocolate flavor to this, most flavorful of any of the beers I’ve tried so far here. A bit one dimensional though. Just.. chocolate. Not too rich, pretty mild though. Lighter carbonation. Kind of slick. Decent porter.
