3.35/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

Strikingly dark in color, but almost no head. Barely one finger of tan head with no retention.

Smells quite good. Chocolate, coffee notes.

A little light in the flavor department. Some coffee, roastiness, but lack of malt leaves it out of balance. Has an interesting citrus tang to it.

Very water, thin mouthfeel for a stout.

Serving type: bottle

4.29/5  rDev +15.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours jet black with a foamy to creamy tan head. Plenty of lacing sticks.

The smell is of milk chocolate and deep-roasted coffee. Robust.

The taste is of bittersweet chocolate with roasted coffee. A touch of anise and earthy hops in the finish.

Creamy and smooth! It appropriate for the style - full, but not thick.

A very impressive, dark, bittersweet stout. Very well-done!

3.61/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a growler into a pint glass.

A
Dark opaque with a thick three finger head due to a vigorous pour. Lacing does noy stick to the sides of the glass.

S
Smells like a mud puddle. It is an earthy aroma. Not sweet or stoutish.

T
Simple and laid back. Not a lot going on.

M
Light carbonation. Thin but not too much for a stout.

O
Not a favorite. But a straight forward stout.

Serving type: growler
