3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery. Combined with the BACON APPETIZER and maple syrup, it’s like breakfast during happy hour. Straight coffee stout with a thinner body by the way.

Pretty generic IPA, nice palate. A bit less sweet but nice roasted undertone. Pretty solid

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear black with a thin light khaki head. Smells of wood, dark chocolate, mild tones of old coffee, and dusty molasses. Body feels kinda light, as is the flavor...well, medium light. Flavor of roasted dark malts, some burnt toffee, some light tones of old coffee grounds, some off bitter chocolate, and some dusty woody tones. Again, all on a light body, so none of it is terribly offensive. When I burp, the coffee tone is more pronounced. So there’s that.

Deep chocolate brown-black in color. Coffee roastiness up front then becomes sweet and malty in the finish.
Notes: Tasted both regular and nitro versions

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown almost black with sticky lacing. Heavy coffee aroma with a little mocha. Full-bodied, rich palate is creamy but not too heavy. More coffee & cream on the palate, good finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2011 In taster at brewery. Looks black as first but is just dark red, clear, and can see distinct light through it. Light brown head. Smells of straight up coffee and chocolate. More chocolate than coffee. Tastes of the same but not as strong as i was expecting. Lovely stout though. 7 of 10.
