3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Dexters, pours a very dark brown nearly black with a light tan head, the aroma is pretty toasty with a little bit of chocolate, kind of toned down from the last ones I’ve tried, the flavor has a sweet front end with quite a bit of the chocolate coming through in the finish, good, just not mind blowing like the past few I’ve tried.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at GTMW2013 preparty. Pours a rich black with a creamy looking tan head. Aroma of roast, Oreo cookie, chocolate cake and cocoa. Maybe some coffee. Flavor is bitter roasted and coffee notes parsed by sweetness from the chocolate malt. Touches of dry bakers chocolate as well. Body is indeed, as advertised, chewy, with a somewhat chalky texture, medium carbonation. Finishes dry and roasty. Overall, nice stout.

Tap at TG. Pour is deep dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma and flavor are full of roasted malt, light chocolate notes, and faint coffee notes. The body is so much more full than 6.6%. A very rich and fulfilling beer. Loved it.
