3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer is not especially dark. Brown hued with a thin cap that leaves faint traces of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists primarily of roast, and is subdued. The flavor is very roasty, with a subtle chocolate and smoke presence. The feel is thin and watery, with low carbonation. I wasn’t particularly impressed, but I would be willing to try this again. Overall, an OK brew.

12oz bottle in a plastic cup. Pours black with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and some floral hops. Flavor strong of malts and coffee. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown, not quite black with a brown head that fades fast leaving slight lacing. Aroma is a bit off putting, a bit metallic. And that carries over to the taste. There’s bits of chocolate, coffee, and some thin metallic aftertaste. Not terrible, but there’s nothing substantial. .

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This one pours a deep, opaque cola brown, with a modest, fizzy but lasting tan head. The aroma is a fragrant combination of coffee with milk, some nutty roasted malt, and a small hint of chocolate. The flavor features more of the same prototypical stout characteristics with a really nice dry, roasty malt profile. The medium body is a bit syrupy, but it doesn’t get in the way of the flavors. Overall, this beer surprised me by providing a decent depth of flavor without feeling heavy.

16oz on tap at Citizen Burger. Good thicker thin light brown / khaki head. Darker, but clear color. Smooth, lighter carbonation, dry finish. Light aroma of black olive, but a good roastiness that lasts into the aftertaste. Some lace. Light dark fruit - lightly bitter roasty taste. Good thicker lace. Very light body. Decent dry stout.

The nose was full and as promised, lots of bitter coffee with hints of bittersweet chocolate. The taste was a bit on the bitter side, with a bit of aspirin. I’m not sure why this stout got poor reviews. It might not have been the best, but certainly worthy.

This is fairly easy on the palate for a stout. Nice coffee notes in this, but pours with very minimal head. A good easy stout to drink.
