3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Mile Marker Brewery in St Augustine, FL. Black color with tan head. Aroma of coffee. Did these guys just serve me cold coffee?? Nope, taste reveals carbonation and notes of chocolate, bitter roasted malt and light earthy hops. Light body, medium carbonation, somewhat acidic with lingering roasty/coffee-like finish. A coffee smelling beer that actually had no coffee in it! Great stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft on a guest tap at Six Ten Brewing, Tampa. Pitch black color with head that died slowly to nothing. Aroma is real nice. Coffee is bold upfront with a light amount of oats and chocolate.
Flavor is just has nice as the aroma, big coffee profile right at the forefront with the oats giving a nice fuller body that seems bigger then 5% ABV. Flavor is strong at that gravity. Nicely crafted with plenty of lingering coffee after the sip. Sessionable and I could indeed drink a lot of this brew.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap @ Swamp Head / Gainesville FL --- Opaque black with a thick brown rim head, lots of lace streaks. Good aroma of edgy malt. Taste is strong toasted malt that becomes a little bitter in the palate. The finish retains the malt, but becomes a little chalky and dry on the roof of the mouth. Otherwise, a solid brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beau visage noir. Belle tête de mousse. Ça sent la pipe, le café et le chocolat. Ça goûte l’avoine, les grains chocolatés et les fèves de café. C’est légèrement crémeux en bouche avec un pétillement bas. Ça finit avec une amertume et des notes faiblement acides. Stout qui manque un peu de corps et de magie noire. En fût au Riverside Market.

Draft to taster at Tomoka. Looks good; a slightly translucent very dark brown with foamy beige head. Smells of dark malt, coffee, and a nice balance of roast. Tastes like it smells with a somewhat bitter mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Draft at Hopjacks Pensacola. Classic dark stout pour with a brown head. Sweet aroma that reminds me of dark caramel or toffee. Flavor is similar to lightly sweetened coffee with a hint of bitterness. Very tasty.
