4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep black pour with a thin light beige head. The nose is of roasted black malts and a touch of smokey coffee. The taste is rich and deep with lots of chocolaty sweetness and a touch of smokey caramel, with some vanilla-ish coffee roastiness throughout. Nicely complex, even though it tastes like they were trying to be simple with it. A little light but nicely rounded.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is malt forward. Pours a thick black with a robust, mostly diminishing tan head and minimal lacing. The taste is caramel and dark roasted malt with a slight grainy bitter finish. Medium-full body with medium carbonation. Overall, a nice stout by any measure.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub in Little Rock. Pours a black body with a finger-width, creamy, brown head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is lighter with a thinned, medium sweet chocolate and a light roast backing. A bit of a lactose sweetness as well. Flavor is a little better. Thin chocolates with a medium sweetness and a touch of lactose up front before a light roast comes in. A light vanilla in the end before this finishes dry with a light bitterness and a thin sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a light body and a medium-light carbonation. Overall, a decent tasting, but thinner stout. Eh.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap - small thick head, very dark brown practically black color, smooth texture with some chocolate flavors - not my favorite type of beer, but this one is not bad; no coffee taste, so that is a big plus for me

To prove that whole top rater of Little Rock thing was just a joke, if I was really trying to be the top rater of Little Rock, I would have tried all 3 of the beers they had, but I just tried the 2 on this trip (this one and the IPA). This one was a decent stout, but it was fairly one dimensional. Still though, it had some nice flavors.
