4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz, bottled 02-21-2013. Opaque with a quarter inch topping of creamy bubbles. Nose of espresso, graham cracker, caramel and ash. Taste is espresso, hickory smoke, marshmallow, tart berries and cream. Finishes with ash and piquant green herb. Near-medium body has light-medium carbonation and is balanced with a dry roasty finish. Great session stout in the traditional style.

Nice floral hop aroma. Apperance is copper color. Good initial taste and continues through. Had at the Yazoo brewery, can’t remember the batch number. My favorite of all their beers that you can normally find in TN

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2006 A great stout. Arguably the best stout produced in the state of Tennessee. You are rewarded with a great roasted finish with this one. Strong in alcohol.

Had on tap at the brewroom the other night for the first time in about a year and had forgotten how good this stout is. It has a different type of tast than most stouts and is hard to describe. A nice smoky aroma and nice roasty taste.

Pours opaque blacl, brown lacing. Nose is full of rich cocoa amd coffee bean. Palate is rich hot chocolate and cafe au lait. Great balance, rich flavor but not too filling or too sweet. Awesome with a pork sandwich.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very interesting stout. Certainly not as heavy as an Imperial, but quite complex. Very smooth, with strong coffee and malt tastes. It almost reminded me of a cup of espresso (especially in the little 5oz glass in the build-your-own sampler at Nashville’s Flying Saucer). Appearance was a nice dark black, but the subdues lighting in the bar made it difficult to discern subtleties about the appearance. Smell was not as strong as I normally enjoy, but a larger glassful in a quieter setting may be more revealing. Very enjoyable beer that I would certainly recommend if you can find it.

Had this both regular and nitro. I was told that the Nitro was actually a different recipe but from an article I just read online that was written by Linus, he said it was the same recipe so I’m doing both reviews here.....Regular- Black, frothy light brown head. Aroma of sweet oats and caramel. Taste is pretty mild, some roast, some ashiness. 7 4 7 3 13 Decent......Nitro- same appearance with the exception of the denser head because of the nitro. Aroma was much more pronounced, lots of roast malt, coffee, sweet grains. Taste was also better, packed way more flavor, lots of toasted malt, coffee. Very nice. 8 4 8 4 15.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2008 Draught at Village Co-op in Nashville. Surprising, sweet, mellow, toasty. Good mouthfeel, though not creamy. Laces well, beautiful color (black). Heehe. Good stout.

Tap at Yazoo brewery poured from Growler. Pours a gorgeous tan head with brown/tan lace all over the glass. Immediate Smokey coffee flavor is really nice. Coffee flavor is not too strong and the finish is a creamy malt texture. A real treat! Yazoo scored on this batch!
