3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap - fair size thick head, dark brown color, smooth stout flavor with significant chocolate flavor also; not that big of a stout type fan usually, but I must say this beer did make for a pretty good "dessert" beer

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ brewpub. Black appearance with a dark brown head. Dark chocolate, slightly spicy, roasty malty nose. Bittersweet chocolate, roasty chocolate malty, light espresso flavor with some pepper spiciness on the finish. The peppers linger a little while afterwards. The peppers really don’t show up until the finish and there’s no vegetal flavor whatsoever.
