3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On handpull at CCB Brewpub. Pours a deep obsidian color with a dark tan head. Nose is roast, big roast, espresso, black coffee, some dark chocolate, and some bitterness along with earthy mint leaves. Flavor is similar with roast, big bitterness, earthy chocolate, espresso and an overall feeling that this beer doesn’t like you. Big, bold, badass milk stout. Medium to full in body with lingering roast in the finish.
Poured a dark brown almost black from the cask with aromas of roast, light lactose, chocolate and subtle earthy mint. Flavors were the same with a light and refreshing mint aftertaste. Not over the top just enough mint that says hello.
