A very drinkable, light bodied smooth stout that goes down just a little too easily in not quite a good way. It has small amounts of roasted malt and chocolate in fact everything about it is small. A decent brew, but truly just a beginner’s stout.

The aroma is toasty with chocolate, coffee, grass, and cream. The appearance is almost black with a smooth tan head. The flavor is like the aroma with a sweet and bitter finish. It has a acidic quality that is not fantastic but it’s still pretty good. The palate is average. Overall it’s decent.

Bottle poured a clear dark brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee and light vanilla. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of dark chocolate, coffee and carmel with a smooth malty finish.
Not a bad stout just a boring one.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Black with thin fizzy head, which dissipated quickly after pouring. Wasn’t as impressed with this as my mouth was hoping it to be. To much coffee in the nose, followed by a touch of carmel and chocolate. Mouthfeel was considerably thinner than I was expecting, and whats up with the carbination? Other than that an intersting stout.

This beer has the aroma of smoke and coffee. This beer fills the glass with a black liquid that sits under a thick almond colored head. The taste is introduced by a combination of smoke and roasted nuts as the solution flows through the mouth a coffee taste can be picked up. This beer is moderately thick and mildly carbonated that leaves a nice taste lingering on the palate.

I do not know if the meaty mushroom taste is done by esters/process or they just squished a few shrooms but it is gross. Oily near burnt roastyness. Bad mouth feel and finish.
