The Black Hawk stout...has a great name #1...as in the #1 hockey team in the NHL...but is also a solid stout. The beer pours an opaque black with thin slightly offwhite head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent carries chocolate and peat. The taste is more leaning towards espresso. The mouthfeel is fuller in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this is a solid beer.

3.2/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

App: moderate head, of deep black "stouty" color, and sweet bouquet in pint

Entree: impactful mouthful, with unwanting - unpleasant lingering aftertaste

Dessert: not tasteless, but not really taste full. Again, not eloquent in defining hints of this and that (not a judge, just a critique sampling the many offerings and commenting accordingly--since looking for holy grails of a variety).

Not crave / repeat worthy.
