4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at the Horse Brass Pub in Portland. Black as night. Smoky and sweet chocolate and tobacco in the nose, with some cherries and a strong coffee presence. Very rich and creamy, with an overpowering coffee flavor, just too much really. A big, hearty, black-as-death stout with an awesome sweet flavor, but too much coffee.
