3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Reuben’s. Pours inky black with thin dark mocha head. Aroma is faint medium dark chocolate malt, light sweet chocolate, and a bit of coffee on the back. Taste is super smooth creamy lightly roasty malt, coffee and bittersweet chocolate on the finish. Aroma and taste are a bit underwhelming here, but the body and mouthfeel on this are amazing.

(Tap) This is a great stout. Some astringency which is its biggest flaw. Slightly too bitter for my taste, but a great stout regardless.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ the brewery during 7/5/2014 Seattle beer tour. Pours an orangish brown appearance with a brown head. Definitely get the oats in the nose. Seems a bit sweet and chocolate-y. Flavor is a little twangy. Some plum and red grape notes. Dark chocolate. Pretty fruity. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. One of my last favorites here.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate light brown head on it. Nose is a little bit roasty with some oats and grains in there as well. Taste is roasty with a bit of coffee to it, but I don’t get the chocolate that the description suggests. OK, but nothing amazing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewery
Dark color, almost black, with compact beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, light coffee, some cardboard. The mouthfeel is fairly dry, not as strong as expected; the roasted malt dominates, there is just a hint of chocolate, and some molasses. Strange.
