On tap at Rattle N Hum, poured into an imperial pint glass. Deep dark almost black hue with purple on the edges capped by a creamy off white head with excellent retention. Nose is light with hint of roastiness. Taste is full of roast malt, light flower balances nicely. Mouth is light and creamy. Yeah!

On tap at Pinocchio’s. Dark pour, floofy head, lacing all up and down the glass. Lots of oat the nose and flavor. Just a mild bitterness from roast, subtle hints of coffee. Smooth on the tongue from the nitro pour. Enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Rattle N Hum. A long pour yields a Guinness type clone with massive carbonation, reverse cascade, with a forthy cream head remaining. Rings of thick, sheety nitro looking lace. Looks like it is on nitro but I could be wrong. Deep coffee SRM looking black. Tart berries in the nose. Taste up front is sweet sugar and lactose sugar moving to toast, bitter chocolate, earth, silky oats, tart berries. Tangy sourness in back end similar to Guinness. Feels like a slightly heavier Guinness clone/Irish dry stout more so than a sweet stout. Mouthfeel is thinner and sessionable. Decent.

On tap at Churchkey. Black pour with a creamy head. Nose and flavor both hold excellent lactic cream, roasted bitterness, sweet chocolate, and a surprising amount of evergreen hop bitterness. Nice stuff.
