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.

Part of a flight at the taproom. Notes just say surprisingly sweet without being cloying. Not crazy about nitro beers usually, but this one was very pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, light oatmeal. Taste is very smooth and the flavors are there. I was expecting the roastiness to hit me in the face a bit more but it was well-balanced.
