2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
some nice scores here, but I was not a fan. Liked the porter better. This was a small beer that couldn’t stand up to the nitro pour. Watery with a sweet flavor and aroma that lacked any depth.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black pour with a fluffy khaki head. Kind of watery nose. Some roasted malt, a bit of chocolate and cocoa powder, and a little bit of earthy hops. The flavor is a bit sweet with some chocolate notes, a bit of roasted malt, and coffee. Light earthy hops, a mild bitterness, and some cocoa powder and cola on the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Extremely dark brown (pretty much black, but with a hint of brown)...completely opaque, with a tan nitro-ish head. The aroma was nice and roasty, but nothing else. The flavor was very roasty, sweet, and slightly bready...nice. The feel was a cross between nitro and CO2 (is that possible?)...very smooth, small bubbles, slightly crisp, wet finish. I can’t tell if this thing is on nitro. The brewery was so damn busy that I could not catch the bartender to ask. It was not flat enough to be nitro, but there was something funny going on.
