3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 4/21/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Frugal MacDoogal. Pours nearly black with an average tan head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is sweet creamy malt with plenty of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and a touch of vanilla. The flavor is dark with a bit of a nutty note, along with the same lightly sweet creamy vanilla, dark chocolate, and coffee. The body is full and creamy with average carbonation and a long creamy coffee and dark chocolate finish.

Bottle. Dark cola. Sweet chocolate, raisin aroma. The taste adds creamy malt in the middle and bitter black coffee on the finish. Rich mouthfeel, low carb. Very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle poured into pint glass. Dark brown color with medium beige head. Aroma of coffee, nuts, and slight chocolate. Medium sweetness with lots of coffee flavor and hints of chocolate. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Thin feel in the mouth for stout with a clean finish; strikes me more like a porter. Overall, an enjoyable, easy drinking stout.

On cask poured into a nonic glass. Likely due to the hand pump, the aromas seem muted, although maybe this one just naturally has muted notes. I was able to pick up notes of vanilla, cream, milk chocolate malt balls, and warm oatmeal. It pours a rich, dark brown - opaque - with a bubbly and rocky espresso-colored head that retains well and leaves abundant, cloudy lace. The tastes are fairly muted too, but a moderate, mellow (Guinness-like) sweetness is accompanied by a very light resin bitterness.that provides a cleansing and refreshing quality to the drink. The medium body is rich and malty with texture somewhere between oily and creamy (more creamy thanks to the cask). The carbonation is mostly flat (again, cask influences) with very oatmeal chocolate raisin cookie character on the mouth. Maybe even a subtle caramel hint in there too. The finish is a light roasted coffee and grain nature that’s mostly clean.

Great tasting almost Guiness style brew. Good looking brew and great tasting brew. Wonderfully balanced.
