2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Cascade, pours a deep dark mahogany with a small tan head. Aroma of dry oats, a bit of toasted malt and unsweetened dry cocoa. Flavour of unsweetened dry cocoa, oat, and some mellow fruitiness mixed in there. Pretty dry and mellow, but tasty enough. Decent stuff, but boring.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at sb. Pours jet black with a dense and creamy tan mousse and lots of sheeting lace. Big roasty sweet dark chocolate nose. Creamy soft silky medium body--gorgeously velvety, with gentle carb. Roast and dark chocolate on the mid palate. A little tiny bit more complexity in the aromatics and palate would push this into the stratosphere.
