Bottle thanks to Dany that I took to Jamesís 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours a deep brown to black with a thin white head. Smells of warm malt and chocolate, sort of smells like a chocolate covered pretzel. Medium bodied, a bit of burnt toast and warm malt. A bit of burnt malt into the finish, roast. Decent stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
By far the best beer at Old Harbor. Has malty aroma, lots of smoke and roast. Some dark chocolate. Aftertaste is bitter from hops and burnt malt. Toasty taste. Pours black with good lacing, good head. Average carbonation, thick consistency. Tap at brewpub.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap, hotel bar and brewery. Pours a clear dark brown body, almost black, with a small frothy brown head. The nose is coffee and roast with a touch of sweetness. The flavor is a nice mix of slightly sweet malt and roast with some slightly bitter coffee on the finish. Medium bodied with some clinginess on the finish. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Had several times over my vacation, the hotter the weather was, the better this was. Not exactly amazing, but easily the best beer to be had from the island.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle bought at brewery. Good basic stout with roasted coffee and malt aroma. Body is a bit thin and aroma lacks a bit of complexity and depth. Easy to drink so I can see how a lighter stout like this is good in a warmer climate.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ brewpub. Red-brown and flat looking. Aroma of cheap coffee. Thin. Nice subtle roast and creamy coffee palate. A bit of natural acidity, tiny bit tart. Not bad, just not great.
