3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap @ Dayton Beer / Kettering OH --- Opaque black with a thin rim head, lots of lace dots. Thin watery malt aroma. Taste is toasted malt that grows smoothly into the palate, adding mild chocolate, then turning bitter through a lingering finish. A decent stout, but lacks the milk needed for the style. Another Dayton brew that is close, but needs work before it is a winner.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster on tap at the brewery. Very dark brown red color. Good thin bit of khaki head. Leaves good lace. Smooth, soft, kind of creamy carbonation. Lightly slick finish. Good milk chocolate, more cocoa nibs than anything. Light roast. Moderate bitter taste, moderate sweet. Solid milk stout. Not bad. A bit sweet for me to want to do a whole pint though. A lot of lactose in the finish. On par for the style
