3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is very similar. The predominant flavor is cocoa powder, with some medium roasted malts also thrown in. Even with all of the malt, the beer is very dry. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a so-so stout. Compared to Guinness, which is available almost everywhere as an import it is on equal footing. Compared to the bottles you can buy and the choices at the better bars thereís no reason to pick this over some other breweries.
Aroma / Appearance - Fluid black like a flat glass of Pepsi the beer doesnít look all that inspiring. Coffee, smoke, and chocolate are the main aspects of a nose which is on the thin side.
Flavor / Palate - Smoke, coffee, and malt tease the palate with the potential for more. Black licorice and cigarette smoke follow through into a dry finish. Overall this isnít terrible and is better than a bunch of macros. However it is still drab compared to the other choices available even locally (like Lazy Magnolia and Abita).

Tap. Avenue Pub. Pour an opaque black body with a nice one finger foamy brown head that faded to a thin film. The nose is nice heavy black patent malt with just a little coffee and hoppiness. The flavor is pretty solid as well, roasty black patent malt without being overly bitter or acrid, some dark roast coffee and bright hops on the finish. Light bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation, not on nitro like the usual dry stout. The
More I have the more the hoppiness emerges as well. This is pretty darn nice. Best NOLA beer Iíve had thus far.

Had this on draft at the avenue pub in nola. This a great stout that's well balanced. It's a little high on the Abv at 6+%.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft, multiple pints. initially came across as quite robust, flavorful, rich, roast and char-heavy and generally balanced, but by the end of the first pint and through the others, there this general impression of char / tar / soy sauce that grows more aggravating with time. moderate bitterness, heavy char and roast, sticky and chewy and round and slightly syrupy. decent but not something I could drink many of.

1/21/12. On tap. Black pour with a nice creamy tan head. Nice aroma of chocolate and light coffee with just a touch of butterscotch. Rich flavor as well. Dry stout characteristics with roasted coffee and touches of dark chocolate. Not bad!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark brown. Lightly chocolatey "Irish stout" aroma. Light chocolate character in an Irish stout body that nevertheless carries some stronger alcohols, light fruits and does at time cross into strong/foreign stout territory. Fun brew, I sought it out on my trip to NOLA.
