2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. The pour is a dark black with a nice dark khaki head and a couple spotty offerings of lace. The aroma is pretty malty, with light offerings of chocolate and roast. There is a strong metallic bit on the far back end. The flavor is just sooo light. Light cocoa and roast and nothing. Thin black water. The mouth feel is really thin with a minimal carbonation and just terrible. There is a strong metallic aftertaste and a little bitter cocoa. Not good

Head is frothy and tan. The body was clear, the color of dark brown/black. The aroma smelled of chocolate and coffee, with a light hop undertone. Medium bodied and creamy. The flavor duration medium to long, light sweetness and acidity, moderate bitterness. Overall this was a very nice stout, with hints of coca and strong coffee, not much chocolate aroma or taste.

Pour is a black with a large tan head. Aroma is more of a roasted malt and not much of a chocolate malt. Flavor has more of the chocolate but not really anything over the top. After the swallow a char malt is left on the tongue. This was a big meh for me. There was potential here but nothing really stood out.
