3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep dark near black color with a thin tan head. Nice aroma, light on the roast, but has a nice light piney hop presence. The taste follows suit, with the hop character overshadowing the roast component. Kind of like a dark pale ale.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at brewery. Near black; big amber head. Dark roasted malt aroma and flavor - quite stout and bitter with some sour notes but overall so-so...I"m thinking infected lines or something. Wouldn’t finish a pint.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown, burgundy light at the edges... roasted chocolate malts and coffee in the nose, medium thick texture, but very robust, typical coffee and light hops in a stout, but still tasty.
