3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours dark brown with a well-formed two-finger beige head. Aroma is roast, coffee, molasses, and hops. Flavor is a little weak, but hell, it is 3.8%. Roasted malt, coffee, molasses, slight caramel, and nuts. Pretty watery on the palate. Would like more body to it. Overall this is a nice "session stout" if there is such a thing, but not my first pick by any means if I’m at Yazoo.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pitch black color with a dark brown head- this is darker than most any dry stout I’ve seen. Aroma is lightly roasted malt and mineral water. Flavor is thin and smooth. Slight hoppiness makes it taste like an ESB. Very drinkable, but a little too thin. On Tap at Yazoo Brewery.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Roasted malts and coffee flavors. Dry as can be. Decent amount of hops for a stout. Liked that. Slightly watery and one note. Didn’t like that. This is a weak stout in flavor and alcohol content. Needs improvement.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Taproom. Dark pour, little to no head. Smells and tastes of coffee, roast, caramel or molasses. Piney/earthy hopped subtly. Thinner than expected. A bit of smokiness. Really like...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pint at the new brewery. Pours a nice dark coffee brown with a tiny tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of roasted malts, espresso, brown sugar, toast, and caramel. The flavor is also roasty and dry, with notes of espresso, brown sugar, and caramel. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, roasty finish. Very solid, straight-up-the-middle dry stout.

Sampled on nitro at the brewery. Deep mahogany pour with solid dark tan head. Aroma is roasty mocha. Flavor is nice up front, bitter coffee, lactic acidity, sweetness, with a dry finish. I found the body to be very watery though, despite the nitro.
