12 oz single from the can, purchased at the Craft Beer Cellar - Fort Collins. Roasted grain, chocolate and light coffee in the nose. Similar flavor, dark, malty and pretty smooth. A little thin, but OK overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Roasted malt aroma, dark brown color, chocolate and roasted makts in the flavor, not bitter or overly roasty at all, soft and smooth mouthfeel, perhaps a touch thin... good overall, but not great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very basic sweet stout with an emphasis on the stout, not the sweet. Looked for a bit more smoothness and sugar, but this beer unfortunately has neither.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Steamworks. Seems more dry stout-y. Very grainy. A bit astringent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ brewpub. Deep black with pretty lacing. Coffee aroma has lots of acidity, signalling the same in the body. Tastes like a Guatemalan coffee, actually--fruity and red coffee cherries with natural acidity. I like it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewery, 7.1%. Pretty close to black. Sugary, sweetish and a little bit fudgey aroma - quite foreign. On the palate, however, it is not so much a foreign stout. It is thick and sweet, slightly fudgey...and not very nuanced. It’s ok.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark espresso color with a small light brown head. Notes of coffee, toffee, and chocolate. Really watery, slightly sweet, and generally boring.
