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.
Dark opaque with a thick three finger head due to a vigorous pour. Lacing does noy stick to the sides of the glass.
Smells like a mud puddle. It is an earthy aroma. Not sweet or stoutish.
Simple and laid back. Not a lot going on.
Light carbonation. Thin but not too much for a stout.
Not a favorite. But a straight forward stout.
Serving type: growler
