3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampler at the brewpub. It poured a very dark brown color with a thin foamy brown head. The aroma was of dark roasted grains and ripe plums. The taste was of roasted grains, almost smokey with ash, vanilla, chocolate and juicy fruits. A very decent Stout.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Town Hall. Perfectly black stout with thick tan head. Wonderful aroma of chocolate and coffee along with hazelnut. Very creamy, thick, and powerful tasting stout, having similar, though milder, flavors to much stronger imperial stouts but without the overwhelming hit of alcohol. Good bitterness balances the sweetness. Excellent, especially at its (in house) price.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Town Hall. Dark brown with ruby lowlights and a creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and fake chocolate. Body is a tad thin and tastes of semi-sweet roasted malt and mild chocolate but mostly just roasted barley and roasted malt. Finishes up a tad dry.

Growler courtesy of CLevar. Pours opaque black with thick tan head that sticks around leaving a lot of lacing. Aroma is Chocolaty with notes of coffee, and oatmeal cookies. Flavor is much the same with a full body and creamy palate

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black like a stout with tan head that disappears and no lacing, definitely no nitro. Smell is clean vanilla, milk and dark chocolate, not overly sweet, flavar starts thee same, becomes fairly lactic, smoky and woody amd bitter root or bark as it recedes....which is taking a very long time this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub on August 11th. Poured as you’d expect, a dark brown/nearly black opaque pour. Went down very silky smooth, and had everything you’d want from a nice sweet stout - chocolate, some coffee, roastiness. Delicious.

Dark black in color and had a rather tall tan head. Just a perfect roasted malt flavor, one of my favorite stouts.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brew pub...Pours black with a medium tan head that rises a finger and stays a decent amount of time. Thick lacing...A decent aroma of sweet chocolate, roasy and the oatmeal comes through nicely. Could be a bit stronger and more roasty to really get me excited...The taste is on the sweet side, needs more roast to balance it out more. Light hops on the back give some balance, just not enough.
Worth trying but nothing special.
