3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma: chocolatey, Guiness-like; Appearance: dark black with off white head that dissipated quickly; Taste: unfortunately, similar to Alaskan Smoked Porter. Too smoky for me. Palate: heavy body with smoky finish; Overall: could appreciate the quality but can’t stand the smokiness.

Actually just hella impressive. Nice roasty nose with cocoa and roasty malt goodness. A bit fruity. Drinkable, light, flavorful, robust. Oxymoronic sounding but actually very good in execution. Do this beer justice and don’t get it on nitro.

Draft. Awesome mouthfeel !! That nitro gives the proper creamy mouthfeel. Nice dry roasted texture. Notes of coffee grounds and dark grains, some coffee bitterness. Very nice and classic dry stout. Very nice and went well as a after pizza brew.
