3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a black color with a small brown head that lingered and produced some lacing. The aroma was dry, roasty and had notes of coffee and smoke. The flavor was dry and roasty with moderate notes of coffee, smoke and floral hops. The finish was long and roasty. Moderately full bodied. Ok.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A- Opaque black body that pours with 2 finger foamy dark tan head. Head slowly subsides to a bubbly collar and some lacing is left in the glass. Foggy red/brown hues can be seen below the head when held up to the light.
S- My first whiff of this is full of piny hops. Below the hops is a rich scent of dark chocolate malts.
T- Lots of piny hop flavor upfront with a big balance of warm, rich, dark chocolate in the background. Piny hops come through even more for the finish which makes this brew reminiscent of mint chocolate. Piny hop flavor, dark chocolate, and a slight bitterness linger on the palate.
P- Medium-high carbonation assaults the front of the tongue and body is thick and creamy.
O- I am sure glad I brought a growler of this home with me. It is quite delicious. I love the hoppy character of this stout. I hope this becomes a regular brew at Rivertowne.
Serving type: growler

On tap at the Pour House. Dry roasted-toasted coffee, nutty malt. Other slight aromas, but mainly roasted coffee with mild smoky bitterness. Dark black body with tan lacing head. Medium bodied with a slight carbonation. Taste a lot of dry coffee malt, some chocolate. Very dry. Bitter malt tang at the finish with dry malt finish, but pleasant.
