3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask to taster at OysterHouse. This batch is 4.8%. Looks good; a fairly opaque dark cola with light beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, and light roast. Tastes like it smells with a bit of a mineral taste and a fairly dry mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Taster at the brewpub. The flagship stout. Pours a dark brown with a lot of carbonation bubbles stuck to the inside of the glass and a small khaki head atop the beer. Notes of toasted and roasted malts, salt, chocolate, fudge, and minerals. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, smooth mouthfeel. Really nice; good branding and presentation for the flagship beer.

Taster on tap at OysterHouse during RBWG. Black color. Some head. Good milk chocolate aroma. Good light savory taste to it, some sweet. Light hint of oyster, yeah. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lighter carbonation, kind of creamy texture. Good longer creamy dark malt and lightly oystery aftertaste.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer made be realize that nitro was cool! Jet black in color with a huge cream colored head. This beer feels like a milkshake in your mouth. Very thick and smooth. Bitter dark chocolate taste with just enough sweet to make this very tasty. Overall, as an IPA and sour guy, I like it and could drink it daily.
