3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at East Nashville Beer Festival 2014. Dark brown pour with nice creamy head. Rich note of coffee and cream. I’m surprised by the high alcohol content because it certainly didn’t taste strong. It was very easy to drink. Good stuff.

12oz bottle. It’s kind of like a lighter, like less heavy not "beer lite" lighter, Guinness. Nice caramel notes with a milky mouth feel and an almost chocolatey finish. This would make a wicked awesome black and tan with the apa they make.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Backpocket Brewing. Black appearance with a light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, bitter chocolate, earthy hops and coffee. Similar flavor, bittersweet, balanced and smooth, adding a touch of dark fruity sweetness. Medium body with a dry feel. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; cola with foamy beige head. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, and coffee roast with some hop notes as well. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced. Bitter, but not from the hops (it’s more metallic). Average (at best) on the palate. Not bad, but smells better than it tastes.

Really nice easy drinking stout. Creamy mouth feel and rich taste. Just wish it was a little darker.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark pour with a light roasted and chocolate aroma. It does have that foreign stout vibe which I interpret as dark in color but light in flavor. A bit of coffee at the finish.

Pours a dark brown to black with a very thin tan head. Aroma is roast and earth. Flavor is rich dark chocolate and very roasty. Slight metallic flavor. Sweet in flavor but finishes dry. This is a very nice stout.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 4-04-2010 (Bottled on 01 14 2010) This beer pours a medium sized fizzy light brown head with a short retention, opaque dark brown body, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is malty, chocolate, coffee, hops, and some alcohol. The taste is malty, roasty, coffee, and lightly bitter. The palate is soft carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer is very quaffable, no complexity, worth trying, and a beer I would drink again.
