2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Jolly Pumpkin. Pours dark brown with almost no head. Aroma is cocoa powder, dark chocolate and coffee. Tastes surprisingly bad. How can something with such a great aroma taste like this? Like drinking cocoa powder. Ultra thin and watery. Not good.

Struggling to think of this as a stout. Getting a lot of caramel and little to no roast. Nice beer, but I really can’t think of it as a stout.

On draft at the Ann Arbor Pub. Pours a stout brown with an off-tan head. Nose is roast, some earth, some cocoa, and some chocolate. Flavor is similar with roast, cocoa, chocolate, and some earth. Medium in body and pretty nice overall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the A2 brewpub. Pours a hazy chocolate brown with a creamy brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a note of light chocolate with dark grains and bread as a backbone. Flavor has a good amount of chocolate up front that becomes slightly bitter with backing dark bread and a bit of dryness.

Blegh. Disappointes in this stout. Very light bodied and watered down. I am not sure hoe this one came about at JP, but it is a poor effort. Would not order this again.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub...Velvety chocolate with slightly sour rather than sweet finish. Almost no carbonation, but suitable for the style. Had this as an ’after lunch’ drink and it was outstanding.
