3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a well-balanced stout. Slightly sweet, more sweet than dry, but the sweetness is not bad. Flavors stay up front of mouth, not much of a full palate either. Not a bad brew.

Drank from a 12oz bottle, purchased at Wegman’s, thank you Katrina!! Smells of coffee beans and roasted malts. The taste is smooth with a silky complexity that leaves with a nice, well done hop flavor. Good job, a good brew!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
BOD 1/29/15. Pours dark as a starless night. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention.
Rich nose of roast, coffee and dark chocolate.
Light medium body with a smooth texture that is a touch oily and has creamy moments. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a fair amount in the finish.
The outstanding flavor profile is intense (roast focused), complex and very well balanced. It begins with a burst of rich roast that fades into chocolate notes over a rising level of sweetness. The middle brings the coffee closer to the forefront over a mild bitterness that has distinct citric hop influence in addition to roast. Coffee is most noticeable in the finish over a receding sweetness and a lingering bitterness.
