Goblincat's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Goblincat (379) - Westland, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2012
The aroma is roasted and malty, with a bit of chocolate. The taste is roasted syrup, if it existed, and some dark chocolate. Overall, pretty nice, something I would drink again.

12 oz bottle. Pours a soda brown with a small khaki colored head that leaves some spotty lacing. Huge cocoa aroma! Smells like Hershey’s chocolate syrup. Getting marshmallow in the nose too. Simply mouthwatering! Taste is a big letdown after the aroma. Good but nowhere near as big as the aroma. Pretty much only cocoa with a hint of maple syrup and toasty malts. Getting a subtle metallic taste too. Nice finish of cocoa. Palate is the killer here. Very, very thin and watery with high carbonation. In serious need of thickening. May have worked better as a milk stout or oatmeal stout.

Big thanks to Adam for gifting me this and other Michigan beers. the beer is near black (the lighting was low) with a small tan head. This beer is all about the chocolate. The scent and the flavor are rich, dark, chocolates. A hint of espresso bean, cocoa. medium bodied with a light sweetness. perhaps I was in a chocolate mood. This was delicious.

Smells like pancakes at ihop. Looks black with a weak head. Smells like chocolate and tastes like milk. These milk stouts are really wearing thin on the beer scene.

Nate (3556) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2014
From bottle. Chocolate malted aroma, very sweet and almost fake. A little bit of maple syrup. Dark brown-black clear with thin head. Medium body and carbonation. Starts sweet with chocolate malted flavors. Nutty sweet throughout with carbonic bite. Light bitter finish.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. This had some potential until I discovered it was classified as a stout. I knew it was going to be rough just based on the thin pour. The poor is very dark, on the verge of a light black. There is a thin off-white head that fades to nothing rather quickly, and no lace to be found. The aroma is all chocolate. You could smell this thing from across the room. There is a hint of coffee toward the back end, but chocolate dominates everything. The flavor is all chocolate again, but fails when compared to the aroma. No coffee this time around, all chocolate, and it's very light. The mouth feel is extraordinarily then for something that is supposed to be classified a stout. Water may even have a tad more viscosity. The aftertaste is nonexistent, and this is just very disappointing as classified a stout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at GABF. I need the label for this. If anyone has an empty, let me know. Pours dark brown. Nose and taste of of light roast, dark chocolate, sarsaparilla and vanilla. Medium body.

A sweet chocolate and coffee aroma. Dark brown pour with almost no head. Chocolate taste that is very, very thin. Wouldn’t drink again.

bartlebier (1195) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2014
From draught @Camba Tap House, München 02/2014. Aroma to be had from more than arm’s length: deep confectionery dark chocolate that I would love to learn is all roasted dark malts, but more probably due to a generous injection of same from a pancake house-style chocolate syrup bottle. Reminiscent of Young’s Double Chocolate Stout, but more Overwhelming liquid cocoa gives way to some roast, minimal supporting coffee notes and minimal hop presence before giving way to a quick finish on a thin palate.

Strong chocolate aroma, dark full flavored stout with cocoa and sweet malts. Very well done stout.

Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate and coffee. Flavor of chocolate with hints of caramel. Very nice.
