3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed a pint at the brewery in Delaware. This is a nice Stout with a chocolate and creamed coffee aroma and taste. Very smooth, with a nice bitter chocolate finish. A bit grainy on the palate as well. Very enjoyable - I was even more impressed with this beer because I enjoyed it on a warm summer day, after a nice outing at Lumís Pond with my team from JPMC. Not when I would normally pick a Stout, but I enjoyed it very much.

Your run-of-the-mill solid stout. Not too bitter and not too overpowering. Similar to a Guinness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: On tap at the Brew Pub, 8/12/09
Aroma: Coffee, oat, chocolate, roasty, light earthy hops
Appearance: Black color with a long lasting brown head
Flavor: Nice roasted malt flavor, flavors are similar to the nose, bit of hop in the finish, rich and flavorful
Palate: Long duration, full body, smooth and creamy
This was a really nice beer, nice complex nose, and a big taste that had enough hop balance to keep it from being overly malty. Really well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at brewpub. Pours a flat black body with a creamy brown nitro head. The nose is roasty and chocolaty with a minimal contribution of oats and coffee. The flavor is pretty solid, nice roast character without being over-roasted or bitter, cocoa powder, some earthy oat and a bit of nuttiness. Light bitterness on the finish. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel, the nitro does this Stout a lot of good, which I donít always find to be the case. Overall, pretty good, and probably the best of the three that I had that night.
