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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
10 oz at the brewery. This is a true example of a stout. Pours quite black with a small tan head. Aroma is clean and balanced with bold malty notes of coffee, earth, dark cacao and roast. Palate is slick and medium heavy. I really enjoy the harmony of the roasted nuances going on. Lots of espresso notes, cacao, earthy bittersweetness. The finish is almost milky. Very purposeful flavor profile. Excellent stout.
