Very light in flavor for a stout. I am not saying it is bad but there is nothing that stands out

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with medium diminishing brown head. Good lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee. Taste is of chocolate, roasted malt, very slight bitterness, alcohol. Palate: Carbonation is a tad prickling for the style. Medium-full bodied. Oily texture. Overall: Good. Not really complex, but fairly drinkable.

Thx goes to ferris for sharing this ancient bottle (’99ish). Oxydized goodness, plum, old raspberries, dates, syrupy goodness. I breathed it in for 45 mins. Old ass tasty oxidized greatness, light mocha, weak biscuit, different fruit, oily. Terrible description. Enjoyable beer!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle - Vintage old (1999?) - Smells like a tootsie roll, tons of cocoa, molasses and chocolaty goodness. Jet black with a thin brown head. Chocolate and as it smells exactly. Sweet and not sour at all, which is great considering its age. Love it, thanks to CapFlu.

Robust malt aroma with a light amount of chocolate. Black color with a small tan head. Mild beginning with a bitter middle and sweet finish. Palate is a little light for a stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Micheal! Pours near black with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of dark grains and roasted malts with a decent amount of dryness. Flavor has more sweet dark grains with roasted malts and just a hint of dryness in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz with no date purchased at whole foods. First time I've seen this in PA. Pours a dark black but not thick which is good for a dry stout. Little head and zero lacing. Dry malty and cocoa aroma. Mouthfeel is light with a bit too much carb. Taste is very solid. Dark fruit berries very mild smoke and roast coffee. Almost slight my Belgian. No alcohol whatsoever very well done. A classic that more than holds its own with today's competition.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 650 ml. bottle with no bottling/expiration date. Nice dark brown to black pour with a few dabs of ruby red hues. Full beige head. Aroma of chocolate malts, yeast, and toasted bread/biscuit. Pleasant. The body is medium to full but also slightly acidic. Again, like the nose, I get chocolate in the taste with a mild to moderate bitterness and dryness at the end. Overall it is a pleasant and drinkable beer and I hope you get to try it.
