4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark black pour with a persistent khaki head. Nose has a lot of sweetness and a lot of roast with some dark coca and acidic coffee. However, it really comes together in a lovely aroma. Flavor is big yet smooth with roast and a touch of smoke, some bitter dark cocoa, and a semi-bitter coffee ish tone. Roasty and full, and quite dark without being syrupy.

Had on draft poured a dark brown, almost black color with aromas of light chocolate, roast, and some earth. Flavors follow suit, a solid basic stout, wish they out this on more.

On draft at Tampa Bay Brewing Co. Coral Springs. I felt like this one had great potential but is missing some elements. Could use some more coffee/chocolate flavor. The ABV is masked very well and it’s pretty easy to sip on.

Tap at the brewpub. Very dark pour with a tan head. Nice coffee aroma. Oily palate but not overly dense. Dry roasty malts. Good beer.

Thanks to OmegaX for sharing. The nose on this one was of coffee, cocoa and dirt. High carbonation gave to a dry body, but quickly fading into a swath of coffee beans and chocolate covered raisins. I liked this one, I only wish for lighter carbonation... and a barrel-aged version as well.

Tap at TBBC. Nose is tons of earthy cocoa, some light roast, and a nice amount of good ol’ chocolate. Body is dark, dark brown with a tan head. Taste follows suit with a dryish finish. Again, lost of chocolate and some cocoa and roast. A nice drinker.
