3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a black color with a very large creamy dark tan head that lingered forever and left great lacing. The aroma was semi-sweet toasty malts with notes of vanilla, malted milk, cream and touches of wood, roasty malts and coffee. The finish was long and malty with notes of vanilla, toast and cream lingering. Full bodied and smooth. Well done.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pitch black and no head. Barely any aroma but some hints of roastiness. On the palate there is an odd and unique ruddy oatmeal flavor. Mild and lacks bitterness but is leathery at times. Good example of a dark brew, unoffensive an friendly. Carbonation is not noticeable. Above average sweet stout. Finish is not bitter, just plain good dark beer reprise.
