3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at 2008 Indy Microbrewers Fest - Aroma of dark roasted malts, meaty, ashy, chocolate and some hops. Pours black with a brown head. Flavor matches aroma and is very roasty and smokey. Palate is dry and ashy. Tasty but nothing I would drink a lot of in one sitting.

Black pour with a cream chocolate head. Nose is prominent with chocolate and coffee. A little thin considering the name. Taste matches nose.

Draft at the brewery: Midnight black pour with a short mocha head. The nose was hard to detect out of the pint glass, but light nights of chocolate and roast were detectable. The body was nice and full, with that classic lactose induced mouthfeel. Lots of roasted malt, fudge and coffee notes come alive in the body. A slight metallic tinge on the back of the tongue brings this down for me, but a really respectable attempt on their small scale system.

Huge, chocolate roast in the nose - wow! Typical nitro stout appearance - black body with a creamy had of small, tight beige bubbles. Delicious! The flavor matches the aroma. Beer is soft on the palate. A terrific beer and one that makes a visit to Columbus quite likely!

Notes from Indy Winterfest.
Pours black with off white head. Aroma is of weak coffee. The flavor is bitter, chocolate, dark malts, dry, with lactic sourness. Palate was slightly thin. Overall, pretty decent.
