On tap at Poured brown, almost black, thick beige head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma was caramel, some chocolate and some yeast/grain and some spice. Very good tasting beer spices and malts are nicely balanced with coffee notes, quite enjoyable.

Pours a nice root beer colored brown with a small head. The smell is chocolate and coffee and the taste carries through and finishes well. An incredibly drinkable Belgian style stout!

Bottle from BOTW. Black with a fine, low head. fragrant nose, Belgian yeast, spicy, coffee, wood, soy sauce, dark chocolate. Sweet and fruity up front, then dry and roasty. Very Belgian stout. Well burnt in the finish. Very complex. Not my personal favorite style, but this is very well done.

Purchased at Shaw’s in Auburn, Maine. Pours a dark brown colour with a big frothy beige head, good retention and some lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and candy yeast. Milder tasting but with a nice balance between bitterness, sweetness and roastiness. Goes down nicely.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a translucent brown (cola color). A bit of a funky nose - malt, cola, but overall somewhat unpleasant. Taste is pretty good, though - some chocolate, licorice. Somewhat light bodied. Maybe a little too much carbonation. Pretty good.

Awesome American stout. Light aroma of roast grains, and chocolate. Slick, oily mouth feel. Taste blends it all together, very mild coffee bitterness at the finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a good beer pouring quite nearly black with ample head fading to just lingering around the edges with a smear in the middle. Good carbonation when held to a bright light.
A wiff of roasted malt can be smelled along with a hint of alcohol warming.
Tastes like a stoudt with roasted malt, sweet. Can also taste chocolate and coffee tones. Dry at finish, mouth puckering.
Smooth with a thick mouthfeel alcohol warming at the end that tickles the tongue and lips.
Over all this is a very drinkable beer. I wish I had another but I don’t.

Not worth the bottle price, but it is still cool to be able to try a Belgian Style Stout.
