Notes: The progenitor of our series of stouts, Darkling is smooth yet rich with chocolate notes running the gamut from milk to dark to baker’s. A velvety elixir with a hint of espresso accents to balance.

From tasting notes 10/02/18
Had on-tap at Round Table Clubhouse in Citrus Heights, CA

Appearance - Served up in a 11.5oz snifter, black with cola brown edging. Mostly barren surface with a fair ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell - Chocolatey, fudgy aroma with a touch of roast and earth.

Taste - Follows the nose. Chocolatey upfront and throughout with lesser roast and a touch of nutty character. Faint dark fruit character. Finish is mostly chocolatey with fading roast notes.

Mouthfeel - Near full-bodied with fair carbonation. Slick, slightly creamy texture with a smooth, easy finish.

Overall - Good, strong flavor profile. A bit simple, but a very smooth drinker. I would drink this again, price dependent.

On tap at the brewery. Looks and smells like a proper RI stout .Taste is roasty and toasty though it seemed a bit on the mild side as it was being compared to 2 other stronger stouts. Wouldn't hesitate to drink again.
