3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black hue under a thin light beige head that gives off a roasty and chocolaty aroma, with a mild earthy sweetness. Smooth and slightly sweet and earthy smokiness, bittersweet dark cocoa, and stoutly flavors meld in a nice harmony that although tasty, colors inside the classical lines a bit much. A touch of American bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Rich aroma of malt and chocolate. Nearly opaque black color, brown head that slowly drops to a full cover, lots of lace streamers. Taste is rich creamy roasted malt that adds medium fizz on a swallow that also introduces dark chocolate and black coffee. The coffee becomes an effective bittering agent. So much flavor, but so smooth and easy to quaff. A solid stout.

500 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, light beige head, with slight lacing, over a clear black brown (SRM 35) body.....nose is roasted malts with cocoa, chocolate notes, dried fruit including plum, raisin, balance to the malts......taste is lightly sweet with dried fruit notes, hints of toffee/caramel, roasted malts with chocolate, light coffee, finishing with a moderate hop bitterness, balance to the malts......mouth feel, medium body, light alcohol, moderate carbonation making a creamy mouthful. This is lovely, rich, but gentle Stout. The malts are dominant, but hops too are present, making for a nicely balanced beer, which approaches the Baltic Porter, Imperial Stout styles. BJCP 9/3/15/4/7
