3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a dryer stout without much sweetness. Nice fullbody, and roasted malts are most prevalent. The aftertaste is very minimal particularly for a stout. Not many lingering flavors.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown color. Medium carbonation. Very weak aromas of chocolate, minerals, generic yeast smell. Dry palate with coffee, herbal bitterness, and a burned finish. A bit of fruitiness as it warms up. Not incredibly complex. Surely drinkable, but not special.
