3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Sergio’s. Aroma of licorice, milk chocolate, light resiny hops and slight coffee. Appearance was pitch black with well carbonated body and 1/2 inch of foamy mocha head. Flavor of sweet caramel, chocolate and coffee with just a touch of hops as well; the flavor terminates pretty evenly, with not much emphasis on any particular note. Palate is creamy. Very nice English Stout.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A- Perfect. Deep ominous black body with thick creamy dark tan head. The head retention is excellent and a coating of lacing is left all the way down the glass.
S- Deep robustmalty smell. Some dark chocolate and coffee.
T- Good balance. Oatmeal can be detected. Some robust coffee and dark chocolate. Finish is clean. Taste is suprisingly light.
P- Thick syrupy body and low carbonation. Incredibly smooth and goes down easy.
O- This is a very drinkable stout. I would not hesitate to have this one again. Quite enjoyable.
Serving type: on-tap
