3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nearly black. Raisins, coffee bean and some fruit in the nose. Smooth with a good coffee presence, nice hops. A little too raw with the coffee bean flavor but a nice straightforward stout.

In the commercial deScription I read, the writer noted that this brew is carbonated with a nitrogen/co2 mix. Not being a fan of nitrogen, I was wary. I would have to say, however, the mix leaned towards the co2 and the nitrogen provided a nice creaminess. Lots of toasted flavor. Another brew that did not really reach out and grab the tastebuds. But worth a try.
