3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to beernbourbon. Pours opaque black with a medium dark brown creamy head that dissipates fairly slowly and laces well. Flavor is a ton of dark roasted malts, chocolate, anise, coffee. Flavor follows, light sweet and medium bitter, rich dark roasted malts, coffee, cocoa with just a bit of ash. Fullish body, creamy mouth feel. This, to me, is a pretty good stout. Not sure what is going on with the hating for this one.

Bomber from Tattoo Matt--thanks! Very black oily pour; orangish brown head. Aroma is sweet, slightly medicinal. Lots of malt and coffee flavor, licorice in the finish. It tends toward the sweet, syrupy and cloying, though. Nice flavors, but doesn’t hold up.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good coffee stout. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. It was dark and looked creamy with a substantial tan head. Creamy and smooth palate that coated the tongue. This seemed to lean into the sweet category with coffee and roasted flavors up front that finished somewhat dry from the hops. Alcohol was well-hidden. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark pour with dark cream colored head. Smells of chocolate and coffee. Smooth thin palate with a bitter taste towards the back of the tongue. I?m satisfied but not extremely impressed.
