4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is a nice chocolate, coffee, roasty malt. Appearance is a clean dark body with a full than froth head. The taste is a nice sweet balance of coffee, chocolate, and smokey roast. The palate is full, creamy, with a nice soft carbonation, and a long smooth finish.
A really nice example of the Stout class! Must try.

Sweet, roasted chocolate aroma. Semisweet chocolate flavors, the good stuff, not that cheap crap. Roasted espresso, cream, vanilla, toast and sweet toffee as well. Excellent feel. Creamy and just heavy enough to support the flavor.

Bottle sample at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks troubles. Dark to black, not opaque, with a small tan head. Roasty aroma with dark chocolate, a bit of coffee and a smoky note. Sweetish and slightly bitterish flavor, roasty, with dark chocolate, a bit of cocoa, some coffee and a finish with some bitterness and a smoky note. Medium-bodied. Very good.

Jet black in color and I don't see any light getting through this brew. I see a wisp of light brown foam on the top of this beer. I smell rich dark malt,roasted barley, and black licorice. The mouthfeel is silky smooth and is a nice contrast to the bitterness from the roasted barley that fades into a light sweetness at the back of the palate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour with small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, and cocoa. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, faint lactose, low bitterness. Medium body, medium carbonation, became more smoother as it warmed. Top notch stout that was very good but not too sure why they labeled it as double cream stout?? Was expecting a creamier taste and mouthfeel I guess.
