3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft pour into a pint glass. Deep near black pour, light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, coffee. Taste is huge on bittersweet chocolate. Bit of dark roasted espresso. But the chocolate really is overwhelming. Like eating a handful of chocolate chips, which is a bit much.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear black with a persistent thin beige head. Aroma of toasted chocolate and un-greasy pepperoni with a bit of toffee. Flavor is nice and chocolaty with roastiness and a bit of smokey meat (not quite the sausage or pepperoni flavors of smokier ales), and a dry cocoa finish with a slight touch of bitterness. Medium-full bodied and a little by-the-books for a medium strength stout. Has a certain dark malty doughiness about it.

draft. roast and rough chocolate malt combined with stronger-than-expected alcohol, sweet green coffee beans and astringent grain husks. has a robust roast / char character, but it’s far too sweet and sludgy to enjoy.
