3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Raccoon Lodge. Standard stout aroma. Surprisingly light in body for a stout, but still a full-bodied taste. Malt and milk chocolate flavors predominate. Easy finish, with a pleasing sweet aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at brewery. Clear dark brown pour with an off-white head. Chocolate, cocoa, coffee. Good carbonation. Medium to light body. More a dark lager than a stout. Nice effort by a sour specialist

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
sepia with whit collar, glass-length lacing. Light toast and roast nose, faint acids. Sweet tea front palate, light watery roast. Mid palate shows watery grains, flabby and empty with light toasty finish, grainy and soft. Thin but sticky body, coats palate in sweetness, emptiness throughout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the Barrel House. Dark brownish-black color with a medium khaki head that recedes slowly. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Light-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of sweet malt, coffee and slight dark chocolate. The finish is semi-sweet with a roast malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Cascade, pours a fairly clear dark amber with a small tan head. Aroma of light roast, bittersweet dark cocoa, and some light toast. Flavour is very bland – with dry bitter cocoa (but barely discernible), some muted roast and not much else. Very bland and muted, as often with this style. Drinkable but weak.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Raccoon Lodge. Pours a pure black color with a medium off-white/beige head. A big roast and char nose. Really sessionable without sacrificing flavor: chocolate, vanilla, sweet nutty malts. Light roast and metal. Good.
