4.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from growler into belgian glass. Aroma is a little underwelming for the style. Picking up a little chocolate, and a bit of roasty malt. not seeing the fruitiness true to foreign stout style. Appearance spot on: dark, opaque color. Nice tan head with good retention. Nice, bold flavor, with big roasty malt presence. Finishes pretty dry. Moderate bitterness, with no fruitiness or diacetyl. Palate: medium body with a bit of creaminess. No presence of alcohol noticed. Very good example of the style overall.

Can thanks to gription. Nose is cocoa with dark chocolate. Black poor with light brown head. Taste is bitter cocoa with a dark chocolate bitterness. Pretty solid but more on the robust stout side while I prefer the more tropical and fruity versions.

Can to pint glass. Black pour with small tan head. Nose is big - coffee, ash, chocolate. Flavor follows with a bitter finish. Slightly thin, but very good; I can see why these guys win a lot of GABF medals.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep black pour with a huge espresso head. Pour was on nitro, so the head is especially large. Aroma is nutty with hints of raisin. Dry finish. Creamy mouth, but on the light side. Taste has some nuttiness, very dry. Very easy drinking for the style. Hints of lace present.
