3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy, chalky brown color. White head and lacing. Raunchy malt character. Stinky and delicious. Roasted bitter malt taste. Better than average but the body is a bit thin.

Tap at the brewery. I suspect there may be some batch to batch variation on this brew. My sample was very thin looking- plenty of light made it through this beer giving it a thin, black/brown appearance. The taste was very mild for a stout. There were some hints of roasted malt. Low bitterness. OK but not great.

A nice lively palate and dark apperance, but not a lot of great flavour here. Not my favourite stout.
