3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours black with a small brown head that has average retention. The aroma has a nice mix of roasted malt and dark and milk chocolate. The taste is big and roasty, dry coffee bean. Well done.

would have been a better stout if the porter hadn’t been next to it in the flight. after sipping the porter this one was a bit anemic. bit of a lighter mouthfeel that I like in a stout- decent coffee, earthy, malty flavour. brewer may have been a bit stingy with the hops. just average

Serving: Draft at the brewpub. It pours a very dark brown color with a thin tan head. The nose has light roasted notes. Earthy roasted notes on the palate with a weak bitterness. Definitely a dry stout in nature. Light body and pretty drinkable.
