4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very rich roasty aroma. Smoky. Lots of coffee and chocolate in this. Very rich flavor yet not heavy at all and doesn’t fill you up. A nice stout.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Solid offering. On nitro. Pours dark brown/black with a big, creamy, light brown head that leaves some nice, sticky lace. Smells good. Roasted malts dominate, sweet. Tastes of dark roasted malts, toast, with a tiny hint of dark chocolate. Light body, ok nitro carbonation.

Nitro at Pizza Port San Clemente. Pours a clear ruby topped with a thick, whipped cream head that leaves awesome sheety nitro lace. Fresh, floral nose with some smoked meat character. Taste is fully, smokey, meaty, medium to light-bodied with a great, nitro palate.
