3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served on nitro-tap at the Brewpub.
A - Pours a frothy one finger tall white head leaving sticky rings of lace down most of the glass. The nitro pour makes this one look delicious.
S - Smells of dark roasted chocolate malt, day old coffee, light smoke, dark fruits, toffee and a bit of caramel. This one has a ton going on in its depths.
T - Starts off with plenty of dark roasted chocolate malt, day old coffee and some mild smokiness. Hints of dark fruit, caramel and toffee help round everything out. FInish is a little toasty with some dark roast, not really lingering on the palate for long thanks to the nitro creamy feel.
M - Heavy body with moderate carbonation. The creamy feel from the nitro pour really makes this one luscious beer to consume.
O - Nothing too crazy here, just a very nice all around stout. I think the nitro pour really helped this one. Glad I got to try it while it was around.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft at brewpub. Pours dark, dark brown on nitro with a half an inch of khaki foam which leaves a lot of lacing. nice nutty notes on the nose. There’s also a bit of toffee on the tongue. It’s quaffable but a bit to high in the ABV for true sessioning.
