3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

wayyyy too much coffee and roasted character with hardly any balance. Just rough and raw. Blah. Again for whatever reasons the beers seem to tame after the first couple of sips. Still overall not very good at all.

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.

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