3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of roast coffee with underlying floral hops. Appears an opaque dark-brown-black color with a creamy tan head. Flavor is roasty and a tad burnt, with appropriate residual sweetness, but little to no oatmeal presence. Palate is smooth, creamy and very soft. Overall, a very good sweet stout, and a bit more than the sum of its parts.

Good but not my favorite stout. Has a bit of a sour bite to it. Can't seem to get past the sourness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of toffee and yeast. and hoppy hints. Pours an opaque dark brown with a fairly thick tan head that leaves some lacing. Taste is roasted malt with black cofffee and toffee notes. Super carbonated - not full-bodied, which may be the key to its drink-ability. Not bad but not particularly memorable.

Old rating. Forgettable stout. Chocolate, caramel, chewy, medium bodied. Nothing offensive nothing spectacular.
