3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Three Needs. Aroma of rich dark chocolate malt and coffee traces. Really nice flavors in this stout. Chocolate, coffee with cream I taste upfront with molasses and vanilla toward the finish. They had to have added a hop someplace in this brew to knock down the sweetness. I don’t detect it but it must be here. Full body with a semi dry finish. No alcohol found. Sweet stout lovers will drool for this.

The aroma is very toasted with sweet chocolate, coffee, and overcooked mixed grains. The appearance is dark brown with a tan head. The taste is like the aroma but bitter and dry. The palate is average. Overall not bad but noting special.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured a dark nutty brown in color with a thin cover of tan head that fell to a ring on the glass. Aroma has sweet chocolate, dark brown sugar, light coffee bitterness, and a hit of lactose. Mouth feel is on the light side and the carbonation average. Flavor brings in some roasted malt, dark chocolate, creeping bitterness, brown sugar sweetness, and lactose. It is definitely a big beer that brings plenty of chewy malts to the table. So much that the lactic side though it is big just can not keep up.
