Enjoyed on tap at Trve Brewery in Denver, CO as part of a sampler. Appearance is pitch black with a light tan head. Aroma has a nice dark roast coffee profile with a mix of cocoa. Taste is really good, nice and dry, not too sweet, somewhat sessionable stout. Very good stuff!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with milk chocolate colored head. Aroma is a nice mix of black coffee and dark chocolate. Nice roasted notes as well. Taste is nice roasted malts, notes of dark chocolate, slightly bitter black coffee. Palate is a bit thin, but with this flavor I was looking for the body of an imperial stout. Still a very good stout and one of the best TRVE beers I’ve had.
