3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice black color with a head that settles off to nothing. Sweet milk chocolate aroma. Rich, sweet, roasty, chocolatey taste, much like a milk-stout.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours ebony black with a thick mop of tan foam. Nose is malt and coffee. Thick and creamy on the palate, this well balanced stout bursts with chocolate, malt, coffee and molasses flavors while a suggestion of hops helps provide a semi-dry finish. An excellent stout. Pairs well with red meats- exceptional with venison steak.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown. Smells of sweet roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is a smooth balance of chocolate, coffee, caramel, toffee, roasted malt, and lightly bitter hops. Very good balance of flavors, but the taste is somewhat static -- it would be more interesting if the flavors and balance were more dynamic. Still a good beer that is delightful and smooth.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark brown with a brown head and sweet aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is similar, sweet and burnt, of roasted malt and chocolate while very light and drinkable with a dry finish. Good stout, but not great, as the flavor could have been stronger

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - pours dark with a light tan head. Although there isnít much alcohol in this beer, it seems to stand out in the aroma. There is a coffee taste to it, thin on the mouthfeel and somewhat of a watery finish. I probably would have given it a higher rating had I not had the Alaskan Perseverance Ale (Russian Imperial Stout) first.

Bottle from the Farm to Table Pavillion at GABF 2012. Pours a medium brown with a tan head. Nose is earth, roasted malts, some unsweet chocolate, and black coffee. Flavor is similar- earthy roasted malts, dry coffee, and bits of chocolate. Light to medium in body and lingering earthy roast in the finish.

Dark beer with tan head. Smells roasted with hints of chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, heavy oats. Some sweetness. Medium body, makes it easy to drink. Iíve had sweeter sweet stouts, but this is still a solid beer.
