3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Off the tap at the brewery. Pours a finger of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is licorice and burnt wood.
The taste is quite bitter for a stout (72 IBU), roasted malt and milk.
The texture is crisp with soft edges, moderate carbonation.
The strong bitterness did not blend well with the rest of the beer... for me at least.
Pours black with a light tan head that’s equal parts creamy and frothy. Mild aromas of coffee, vanilla and grain. Good flavor that’s smooth. A bit watery but good overall and refreshing, especially for a stout. Oscbert (1323) - Lincoln, California, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Roasty chocolatey malty coffee aroma with light caramel raisin
Pours black with lasting creamy yellowish head
Rich roasty slightly acrid burnt flavor with sweet bread and caramel
Medium full bodied with medium low CO2, lingering burnt bitter malty finish
Great aroma. Flavor is a bit too roasty and burnt/bitter for my taste. Still an enjoyable sipper, but won't buy again

On tap at Capitol Beer Fest. Pours near black with a rich tan head and an earthy coffee aroma. There is a hearty dark molasses flavor with lots of coffee. baraciisch (3406) - California, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Dark black in color... Aroma of sweet, dark fruits... Lots of fruity esters... Flavor is moderately sweet chocolate malts, lots of roasted notes and coffee bitterness... Decent
