Dark with a small head. Aroma has light roasted malt, some molasses, plenty of citrus hops. Medium bodies. Flavor is packed full of American hops. Background roasted malts. Good brew but would have liked a more powerful malt profile instead of the hops.

Tap: Jet black with a tan head and sticky lacing. Aroma of broccoli when being cooked. It has an interesting zing in the flavor as if the malts are crashing with the hops instead of blending which is ok in this case. It has an intense earthy taste followed by spices like nutmeg.

Pours black into an English pint. Mocha head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Thin with resin and chocolate aromas. Sweet hot chocolate upfront turning to resin before the lasting charred resin finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nanokeg into a pint glass. Pours a very dark translucent brown with a nice tan head with great retention. Taste is a little mild but pleasant. Lightly roasted coffe, dark chocolate, and slight hop bitterness. Palate is extremely thin for a stout which was dissapointing but very easy to drink none the less. Not bad but far from exciting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Canal’s in Lawrenceville, NJ. Pours a near black with greyish/rd highlights and a thin quickly dissipating dirty white head. Odd roasted cereal aroma with a little burnt coffee. At first, this beer reminded me quite a lot lot Rogue’s Morimoto Black Sobi - it has some sort of light vegetable thing going on. After a few sips you start to get some dark chocolate, toffee and deeply roasted malt. Very, very light texture and quite a lot of carbonation. Finishes surprisingly dry for a stout.

Draft. Light chocolate aroma, deep brown to black color, light tan head. Decent stout but body is a little too thin.
