3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A really solid stout, hampered only by it’s palate. I think the texture was a bit too watery, albeit smooth. May have been due to it being the end of a keg. Pour was dark brown, very white thick head. TAste was not bitter or smoky as expected, hints of vanilla, chocolate, and coffee.
On tap at Chino Latino.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft: pours dark brown with a thin white head, coffee aroma and taste with a bit of the vanilla. More or less like coffee bender to me.

Smoke and chocolate make an excellent combination. Coffee and cocoa on the tongue and a wonderfully smooth finish. Delicious.

Light sweet milk chocolaty aroma. Very dark and just slightly red on the edges. Very dark chocolaty flavor. Hint of coffee and hazelnut. Has a slightly light milky texture, and a light tobacco finish. Extremely drinkable. This beer is amazing.

On tap at Republic Uptown, pours a dark brown with ruby highlights and a medium tan head. Taste of bitter earthy coffee and bitter hops balanced nicely with chocolate and vanilla sweetness, caramel and toffee malts. Always a pleasure to find this one on tap, delicious and easy drinking!

Tap. Black. Smells of coffee. Slight vanilla, but mostly coffee stout flavor. Good, not great.
