4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had this brew at the All Colorado Beer Festival on 11/08/08. Aroma is a dry smoky scent with nice roasted notes. Color is a solid black with a thin but tight head. Taste comes on a smooth creamy body that goes down with a crisp feel, then a flavor that is like the aroma, it has dark roasted coffee like flavors and a dry after taste. Very well balanced, just an excellent stout.
