3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the brew pub. Pour was very dark and aroma was rich with roasted scents. Head is pretty thick thanks to the nitro. Overall flavor and texture is very smooth with a dry finish and a nice aftertaste. Very full bodied.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From June 2007 tasting notes, sampled at Thirsty Bear. Dark brown, almost black with a beige head. Lighly roasty nose with a touch of smoke. Flavor starts with roasted malt, coffee and earthiness - moderately sweet then the bottom falls out (flavorwise) and fades into watery-ness. Light bodied, a bit watery with light carbonation.

Tap. Dark, a little bit mahogany around the edges. Roasty, coffee...it’s almost exactly like the 21st amendment 563 stout that I had last night. Good mouthfeel.
