2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at the brewpub. Has your typical stout look. Smells malty, coffee... Very thin and weak malty taste, but the taste that is there it’s good.

I love a stout. This one wasn’t bad. Roasty malt and cocoa. Smell is stronger than it tastes. Good mouth feel. Bitter aftertaste. Decent stout entry.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft sample at their brewpub, clear dark brown with creamy off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt and light coffee. Taste was very toned down to aroma, faint earthy hops maybe. Light body, low carbonation(nitro), creamy with clean finish. Most boring watery dry stout I’ve had, maybe a bad batch.

A very creamy stout. Dark pour with a tan head that kept coming back. Creamy body with a nice milky feel. Chocolate with more roasted flavor than coffee. Pretty good. I would consider this a milk stout or sweet stout rather than dry.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewpub. Dark, roasty, toasty. Put me in mind of a well poured Guiness. A nice example of a dry Irish stout. Well done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nitro at the brewpub- one of the better offerings. Pours a thick deep brown almost black and a nitro tan head. Aroma is nutty sweet syrupy chocolate, toast and nuts with good roasted barley hints, and milk chocolate. Flavor is lacto sweetness, chocolate, roast, light char some harsh acrid burnt malts, leather some tar and nice nutty roast finish. Smooth.
