2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
This one actually smells like milk chocolate, with lactose sweetness and malt. Pours dark brown with a giant tan head that leaves lacing and recedes to huge bubbles. Taste is pretty weak at first, with a surge of chocolate and malt, then giving way to a watery finish. Think yoo-hoo. Palate is virtually non-existent. I was disappointed with this one. I really wanted to like it because Iím from STL and always trying to support our microbreweries.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Thanks Peter "russellcrow")
A- Coffee, cocoa, tobacco, doughy, roasty.
A- Black color, black liquid, tan head.
T- Cocoa, bitter chocolate, malty, coffee, mocha.
P- Full body, thin texture, medium carbonation, dry finish.
O- This beer was a pain in the ass. So much head that I poured nothing but head, continually for almost an hour before I managed to get the whole beer into the glass. Itís a solid sweet stout with more coffee than chocolate flavor in my opinion, but itís not worth the time it takes to pour. Something had to be up with this bottle.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really enjoyed the heavy aroma of chocolate and light coffee. Dark in color. It has a medium to heavy taste of sweet and light bitter. Very pleasant to the palate. The only knock is that is just to thin in body. Was hopping for a Guinness type of finish. With a full body it would be near a 5.
