3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the Moosejaw brewpub in Wisconsin Dells, WI. Pours an opaque dark brown (not black) colored stout with a creamy tan head that has nice retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of mostly toasted dark malts, coffee with some mocha and a hint of vanilla. Taste is medium to full bodied, flavors of toasted dark malt, coffee some grassy and floral hops and a hint of vanilla. Finish is semi-dry with some mild bitterness and coffee aftertaste. For the oak-aged there is some vanilla in the aroma but the extra hop profile hides the oak-aged flavor and character.
