2oz taster on tap, at HopCat Broad Ripple. Very dark brown color, kind of clear around the edges. Minimal ring of off-white head. Leaves good spread of lace, though. Great bigger coffee up front, some dark chocolate, mild roast malt. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet -- a lot less sweet than expected for a sweet stout, a good bit of earthy hops on this guy. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of chewy lighter carbonation. Lightly crisp, light slick finish. Great milk stout, I’m a fan.

Pretty bitter for a milk stout. But a nice bitter beer with sweetness over time. Nice head.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, poured into a shaker. Chocolate and coffee are very noticeable in the aroma with a touch of cream. It’s a very dark, black body with an abundant tan head that coats the glass with lots of messy lace. It’s a medium high sweetness with a touch of bitter at the finish. The body is on the low side of full, but robust none-the-less, with a slick texture and a light amount of soft carbonation that starts to feel flat by the end. It finishes with a chocolate milk note and a bit of grains, coffee grounds and ash. A light chocolate and ash quality sticks around in the brief aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This draft brew on nitro from a restaurant poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque except at the edges black colored body and an excellent lacing. The weak aroma was brown malt dark chocolate and dark malt. The smooth mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering roasted malt aftertaste. The good flavor contained notes of roasted malt chocolate and dark malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

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!

Draft to taster. Looks good; black with tan head. Smells and tastes solid; sweet and malty with notes of chocolate. Nice and creamy on the palate. A good stout.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of chicory coffee, moderate roast and bitter chocolate. Appearance is pitch black with a tight, creamy brown head. Flavor has a nice level of bitterness with the coffee and chocolate, the finish is very light. Palate is oily (power of suggestion? No.) and creamy. A really, really well made stout- no frills, but just an expertly crafted example of the style.
