3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours deep brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is very nice, rich roastiness, coffee, dark chocolate, a touch of burnt toast. Flavor also has a great coffee character, really well balanced with the dark chocolate and slightly burnt malt notes. Finishes creamy with a lasting espresso and bitter cocoa. Medium to medium full body and a soft carbonation. Really nicely done

On tap at the Vine Street location. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, charred malt, and a hint of coffee. Flavor of lots of roast and char, some sweet malt, hint of bitter chocolate, and only a hint of java which was a little disappointing. Still a tasty beer though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On nitro tap at Mountain Sun, gorgeous creamy black with foamy tan head, just like a latte as the description notes. Aroma is big coffee, some slight sweet chocolate and toffee but mainly big coffee, which I am a big fan of. Taste is like a coffee milkshake but not sweet, with notes of the coffee, chocolate, toffee mixing into a bitter roasted finish, perfectly smooth and creamy on the palate. Very, very tasty and done well, especially on nitro.

On tap at the Mountain Sun. Black pour, no head. Non-roasty coffee contribution. Sort of bland, no prickle, light hops, from a brand new keg, should be fresh! Medium body and bah, weak coffee in a weak stout.
