3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an opaque black with 2 finger foamy tan head leaving mild lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate with hint of espresso and roasted malt. Hint of herbal hops. Mildly bitter throughout with a touch of sweet at the end. Long bitter finish. Full bodied, moderately carbonated. Sticky palate. Good overall beer. Surprised the average rating on this one is so low.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at the 11k/7k/5k. Kind of a no surprises beer. Aroma is chocolate milk and roasted malt. Pours black with a white medium thick head. Taste is cocoa, milk chocolate, slight espresso and a light malty finish. Marshmallowy mouthfeel and not overwhelmingly sweet.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Took about 30 minutes to get half a glass to pour that wasnít just straight foam. Eventually settled to a watery dark brown. Aroma and taste? Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. Not chocolate milk. Not milk chocolate. Bittersweet baking chocolate. No balance. Like chewing a handful of chocolate chips.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle. It pours a very dark brown color with a nice tan head. The aroma is intensely chocolaty with lactose and hints of vanilla. Roasted malt is fairly strong in the background. Smells dessert-like and delicious. The flavor is creamy and chocolaty with lots of strong, dirty roasted malt and hints of menthol, floral hops. Mild acidity and more chocolate and ashy roast in the finish. I love this beer since it delivers on everything it advertises from the label to the nameÖ no off flavors and supremely satisfying.

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.
