2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Almost black in color with a creamy tan head. Roasted malt, coffee, and mild chocolate are the primary aromas to the beer. There’s a subtle earthy hop aroma and a mild cocoa powder note. The flavor is a bit on the watery side. Mildly bitter with roasted malt, coffee, cocoa, and earthy hops. There’s a fair amount of dark chocolate character to it as well. Watery feel on the tongue.

Served on tap at the brew pub while in SB for the wife’s 30th. The appearance is a typical brown black. The nose is roasted malt, with light chocolate notes. The flavors followed. Nothing special nothing terrible and average stout.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown to black with a small, creamy, tan and dense head. Aroma is dark roasted malt and with a note of liqourice. Smooth roasted malt base. Lingering dry roasted malt flavoured. Mild bitterness but dominantly roasted malt. Nice roasted lasting impression.
