3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the The Sugarbowl. Just watched an excellent beer get poured. Black - thick and oily. The medium brown cap is huge and lasts forever, leaves tons of lacing all the way to the bottom and appears to be almost plastic it is so thick. The aroma is pretty solid with a big malty quality. Acceptable mild levels of coffee and a chocolate nose that is very long and rich as well. The long, smooth malts go on and on never letting me down but never offering up much more... which is fine by me. The taste is similar. The light coffee makes an early stand and then gently fades away as the chocolate evolves. The coffee never leaves but just blends into the back ground with the rich, warm chocolate with its mild bitterness. The large roundness of the choc flavour continues to impress throughout. Basic fruitiness peers in and out and a woody burntness gathers everything together. Faint hop bitterness. IT has a smooth and oily feel - soft and soothing. Very nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery, served in a shaker. Pours black with a small light brown head. The head fades quickly and leaves lots of fine lace. On the nose, there are aromas of herby hops, roasted malts, coffee and grains. The flavour begins mildly sweet, balanced with slightly bitter hops. It becomes quite dry and minerally towards the finish. The finish is medium in length and malty. On the palate it is full in body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice stout but nothing to write home about. The malts could be more complex. 2010-11-14

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. I really like this stout - roasty and flavorful for a "normal" stout. Needs to be more widely available.
