3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler... RBSG 2014… Cloudy dark-brown pour with a small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The nose is a lush mélange of roasted tree nuts, milk chocolate and vanilla. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is deep-roasted and acrid with tons of black mocha - Cuban espresso and an 85% cacao chocolate bar - in the finish. Really enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is very dark brown w/ a ring of white head. It has a big chocolate and roasted coffee nose. It is very lightly tart w/ a touch of sweetness. This has a nice solid roast character and a dry finish. It is medium bodied w/ slightly prickly carbonation. This is a pretty decent stout and the best by the brewery that I have so far tried.
