3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Surprisingly refreshing for a stout, drink it ice cold in a float or let it warm up to get all its complexity. Food Pairing: Vanilla Ice Cream.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Roasty malty aroma, dark chocolate, coffee, earthy hops.
Pours black with red tints, small brownish heads that barely hangs on.
Roasty coffee flavors and dark chocolate, woody flavor, slightly burnt.
Medium full bodied, medium high co2, lingering burnt roastiness.
Enjoyable roasty stout. Doesn't stand out from other American stouts, but solid and worth purchasing if you want a good stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz pour from room temperature bottle into Spiegelau stout glass. Large light brown head, moderate retention, considerable lacing. Pitch black and opaque. Nice smell. Nose is coffee and chocolate. Pleasantly roasty. Mouthfeel is creamy with a bit of carbonation. Taste is dry and roasty. Dark chocolate, coffee, a little burnt. Maybe a hint of vanilla. Quite bitter. A solid stout, though not my favorite.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a malt and coffee aroma
Appearance= black with a very appealing tan head.
Taste- Malt and coffee but the more I have of the beer the less impressed I am with the flavor. It seems "empty" after the beer first hits your taste buds
Palate- A heavy body brew with medium carbonation and has a slightly oily texture.
Overall- An OK stout, I was expecting much more from Avery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is dark brown with decent, silky tan head. Laces. More along dark barley grains and roasted coffee on the nose. Medium body. Again, a roasted coffee and grainy taste with an earthy bitterness to finish.
