3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Extremely subtle aroma hinting of chocolate and almost flat, headless pour gives the impression that it’s a lackluster imperial stout . Quite fortunately, wave upon wave of flavors and sweetness of varying intensities greatly enliven the brew once poured into your mouth. Very satisfying when enjoyed on draft.

Taste is of sweet chocolate, caramel, light lactose, some roastiness, a bit rough and quite sweet. Medium to full bodied with some alcohol presence. Finishes to the sweet side of bittersweet.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours with little to no head, dark chocolate color. I did not experience much of the coffee aroma or flavor as I had expected, but overall this is a very enjoyable beer. There is definitely a roasty quality to this beer, however as mentioned, I felt like there could have been a better focus on the coffee notes, but a solid beer all around!
