3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Enjoyed a nitro pint of this beer on tap at the Vermont Pub in Burlington. The beer had a dark black color with a thick and creamy appearance below an average-sized, thick and creamy off-white head that had good retention, and excellent cling and lacing. Its aroma had some modest malty chocolate and earthy tones along with a bit of grainy hops. The beer had a somewhat sweet taste with bits of light chocolate and earth, but also a modest grainy effect. The body was quite creamy and wet with low to average carbonation and a lighter, smoother mouthfeel.

Draft @ the Brew Pub. 6 oz. snifter shows deep black with tiny head around the edges. Aromas and flavors are coffee, chocolate and decent amount of roastiness. Medium to light bodied, dry, soft carbonation. If you’re looking for a dry Irish stout, this is ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
tap at the brewpub - Pours near black with a very long lasting tan head. The aroma is of roast coffee. The flavor has loads of coffee with dark roast malt and a smoky character. It’s got a smooth, lightly carbonated palate, a too light body, and a roasty, smoky finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Une pinte bue en compagnie de mon cousin Vincent sur place. La bière est noire opaque avec une belle mousse beige crémeuse. Le nez offre de beaux arômes rôtis avec une touche de chocolat. La bière coule bien en bouche, elle est désaltérante, le rôtie transpire en bouche. Bon stout facile à boire.
