3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a nonic pint glass, the appearance was a hazy dark brown color almost black with a fingerís worth of white foamy head that feel off at a good pace. Some lace.
The aroma had a ton of roasted malts with some grainy dry sweetness.
The flavor leads with the roast and seems to end up being in the finish. Thereís no aftertaste in this.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Roasty dryness grinds into my tongue.
Overall, super dry all around with not much else, well, itís okay, maybe again.

On tap at the brewpub. Nice black pour with a light tan head. Dark roasted malt in the aroma and flavor with a nice smooth finish. Interesting stout in the it doesnít try to overpower you with coffee and chocolate. Very solid, drinkable beer.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint at the brewery. Poured nice and dark with the proper head on top. A very pleasant aroma of hops. The taste was a light to medium bitterness but very smooth on the palate. The overall impression was a total winner. Keep up the good work.
