4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at PP Ocean Beach. It pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is chocolaty and roasted with some bread, toast and dark fruit. The flavor is the same. So smooth, and rich but not cloying with brown sugar, fig, dates, coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and dark bread. Very complex with near perfect mouthfeel for a big stout. Amazing stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Urge Gastropub. Thick black pour, with a brown head. Dark roasted malts, heavy chocolatey flavor, smoke, brown sugar, burnt coffee, notes of green pepper, and moderate bitterness. This is a big, heavy stout. Pretty good, a little too sweet.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
En fût au Urge Gastropub: Un corps onctueux, fondant et moyennement sucré, juste assez pour y retourner. Des notes café et de cassonade encastrées dans un chocolat noir dominent principalement avec un intéressant angle de cannelle. Superbe du début à la fin.

Extremely black. Leaves a nice lacing. Coffee aroma dominates. Smoky and bitter. Beer is very astringent with a long aftertaste. Needs balance.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft sampled at GABF 2014. Pours a deep brownish black with thin tan lacing. Aroma is super sweet chocolate, light roast, brownie, and brown sugar. Mouthfeel is medium to full and rich with notes of chocolate syrup covered brownie, oak, rich coffee roast and sugar. Overall a bit too sweet, but still a nice stout.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
aroma on this is a very enticing funky chocolate. but tastes of too much yeasty cheese, which makes the chocolate/fudge flavor off-putting. some overly sweet brown sugar in there finishes kind of harshly.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
16oz tap pour at Bressi Ranch. Inky black pour with large mocha foam. Aroma of hot chocolate, s’mores, graham cracker. Taste is a bit sweeter than Order in the Port, not as hoppy, but a much better beer structurally than Night Rider. Thicker, chewy mouthfeel like brownie batter, extremely rich body, perhaps the most "massive" beer made by any Pizza Port, though not as approachable as Death Star and not as ’perfect’ as Order in the Port with the latter’s high hop balance. Better than Barrel Aged Night Rider.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at PP Ocean Beach, 19/04/14.
Black with a moderate tan covering that soon dissipates to zero.
Nose is big roast, chocolate, light spice, molasses.
Taste comprises rich chocolate, roast malt, molasses, dark toffee fudge, brown sugardom.
Medium + body, fine carbonation.
Easy drinking impy, the 11% doesn’t rear its head much, lacks depth though.
