3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks dra19. Pours a dark thin brew with a profuse creamy tan head. Acted bottle conditioned. The head broke down incredibly easily. The aroma is roasty, coffee, chocolate, swirling releases a lot of carbonation. The flavor is smooth, roasty, kind of sour, coffee, a bit thin in the mouth, sweet, has some interesting qualities. The palate is a bit thin and very carbonated. Interesting brew, I enjoyed it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark beer out of the bottle with ruby highlights when held against the light. This poured with an uncontrollable brown head and was way overcarbonated until I beat out some of the bubbles. Chalky, bitter chocolate nose. Some thin caramel sweetness, bitter coffee, over ripe fruit and dusty chocolate. Very lively on the tongue. There is an odd sourness in this. Not as rich as I had hoped.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2008 There is no excuse for this. Black pour, but incredibly thin body for a stout. Otherwise, a light coffee aroma and a pour, sour, stale coffee taste. The finish has a terrible sour taste. Why the would waste their time selling and marketing such a poor product, i have no idea.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark brown with a mammoth brown head that fades in chunks as quick as can be leaving no real lace. Aroma of molasses, caramel, coffee, roasted grains, chocolate and coffee. Taste of uh, infection. Roasted malt, sour off-putting notes, light cherry and mild coffee. Finishes up dry, acidic and a bit chalky.

12oz bottle 7/24/09 (Siciliano’s Market-Grand Rapids)-Pours a dark brown almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, malt, and slight chocolate. Taste of malt, slight bitterness, and slight tart. Tastes like it is infected. This medium to full bodied brew is another so so brew from these guys.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours black with a small tan head that recedes rapidly. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and grains, bitter chocolate, sweet malt. Flavor of sweet malt up front, some coffee but it is faint, with roasted malt in the finish. Palate is smooth and creamy. This one lacks a strong espresso presence, but it is a tasty stout.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with mikem409. Pours more like a cola than a beer with a black body and a head that fizzed away in seconds. Pleasant aroma of coffee with notes of roasted malt and chocolate. The flavor is coffee with a bit of cardboard and tobacco. Moderate bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle gifted by Adam. Far out.
The beer is near black with a thin beige cap that quickly fades to a thin layer. Aromas of espresso, coffee beans, chocolate, molasses, dark fruits. Nice flavor. Not in the upper tier of its class, but still enjoyable. The body is a tad thin. Strong coffee presence. Light bitterness in the finish. Overall, pretty good.

12oz dalekliz got me on her road trip or her mom got it for me, hard to know, great ipa from them and good name I thought it was worth a try. Pours black with a tan ring. Nose is nice with a lot of deep dark coffee and espresso character. Taste is rich and better than I’d expect from the ratings.
