4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is like a foamy desert drink. Espresso, and what I can only describe as a negative (or inverted) chocolate taste. I am not quite sure how to describe that, but I like it. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice session stout. Pours nearly black with a nice white head that lingers nicely. This one is served from nitrogen so it has a nice creamy mouthfeel. The taste is fairly mild. The roasted malty notes are there but they’re buried. This would make a nice session beer in part because it looks so fantastically drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep dark black pour topped by a creamy nitro head. The nose has a nice soft oat/chocolate character. Bitter cocoa, assertively roasted malt and a soft creamy palate. Light bodied but there is a nice malt complexity behind the roast. A little bit of caramel mid-palate. Soft cocoa and a bit of light toasted malt. Roasty and smooth.

tap @ Otto’s - very dark pour with nice foamy beige head. Arouma is toasted espresso, soft velvety mouthfeel and chocolately. finishes with some astringency and slightly vegetal. Overall decent: the arouma and mouthfeel saves this beer.
