3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
THX to Kraddel! 35 ml. bottle split by 2 @ Barely Legal Tasting Room. Pours black with a big creamy tanned head. Grainy roasted malt and coffee grounds in the nose with some light milk sourness, touch lactose. Bitter tastes of coffee grounds, very grainy, charcoal, roasted malts, hurbned herbs, quite bitter with some light spoiled milk sourness in the back. Grainy body. I don’t get it, I had troubles getting through my tasting glass. I wouldn’t buy this if this was cheap and local. This is like someone tried making Stouterik and totally messed-up. Yet the score is this high.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Bottle] Inky black pour with very little head on top. Nose is of bitter chocolate, wood ash, coffee and lighter anise notes. Taste is of bitter malts, mocha, charred tobacco, molasses and moderate hop bitterness. Oily palate and a sticky, coating mouthfeel. A nice beer. Tasting notes from 2/2012.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz. bottle to shaker. Pours BLACK. Light does not shine though it. Two finger brown head, no a lot of lacing, surprisingly. Aroma of dark malts, dark chocolate, coffee and anise. Taste is super-complex. Bitter up front, bittersweet in the middle and it finishes bitter from the malts not the hops. Amazing. Notes of coffee and complex dark malts. Body is borderline medium to heavy, carbonation is perfect, but unseen. This stout is World Class.

Bottle. Roasted malt and chocolate aroma with light notes of coffee. Pours deep black colored with a thin, light brown head and not much lacing. Roasted malt flavors with just a hint of coffee to start. Rich chocolate rounds out the finish with the flavors lingering on the palate on the smooth, rich, flavorful finish.
