Nice flavors of coffee and chocolate. Very well balanced stout that had smooth carbonation. Overall a good stout that I would definitely drink again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. 10/12/14. Pours opaque and black with a dense and active light brown head. Aroma is roasty, chocolate,vanilla, caramel, some coffee, hint of char/smoke; smells great. Taste is smokey, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, roasty; finish is creamy and smokey with roast malts. The roast malts here are big winner in my book. Light lacing. Medium-light bodied, thin but creamy. Medium-low carbonation. I’m ashamed it’s taken me this long to try this beer. Really nice job!

Draft: very dark brown with a nice big, tan head. Lots of chocolate aromas. Taste is bitter chocolate and some nice mild coffee taste. Wonderful stout, doesn’t get the credit it deserves.

Sampler from bottle at 2014 Price Hill Beer Fest on February 16, 2014--glad they had this because I can’t find my original tasting notes. Very appealing roasted malt aroma, opaque brown hue, good taste that doesn’t quite live up to the aroma’s promise but still a quite satisfying brew.

12oz bottle. Opaque black body. Steady, thick beige head. Roasty chocolate aroma. Kind of bitter and sharp, in a cocoa way. Big creamy chocolate tones. This is a solid Stout, Thick specialty malts. Certainly a good beer, exceeded my moderate expectations.

Nice brew!! 12 oz bottle to glass. Coffe and roast in aroma dark pour. Taste is similar to aroma maybe even too much coffee in taste. Did enjoy the over roasted coffee flavor. Med palate
