4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep dark very nearly black beer with a big tawny colored head that lingers on for quite awhile. It appears to be well carbonated.
Aroma is that of sweet roasted malts also chocolate and coffee.
Definitily has a sweet roasted malt character to it. I get a nice complex roasted malt flavor upfront. then turns mellow and sweet.
A very nice mouth feel with a smooth soft mellowness and a dry finish.
Nice lacing from the sticky foam head.
I taste tasted this beer waiting for my kids to come home from school. It was a cool blustery day with clouds in the sky.
My flag was waving in the breeze in front of a brillant red maple turning quickly in the autumn sky.
That was a good beer.

Pours a deep near black brown with a dark tan head. Aroma of coffee roasted and smokey. Taste is sweet up front with a creamy mouthfeel that carries the beer from sweet to roasted with a clean finish and residual smokiness.

Awesome black pour w/ a great tan head that leaves excellent lacing. The aroma is a little faint - w/ some chocolate notes. The taste is kind of plain w/ a touch of bitterness in the end. Light & drinkable - overall pretty solid!

12 oz bottle into a snifter. Pours a dark black with a small light tan head that fades quickly and leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma of cocoa, black licorice, coffee, and dark fruits (plum, raisin). Taste is cocoa and dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, and black licorice. Slightly dry finish of cocoa and bittersweet chocolate. Full body, thick texture, average carbonation. Excellent stout! Everything a good stout should be.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Look: pours a dark black. Slightly thinner than I anticipated. Light brown sugar head that disappears quickly.
Smell: heavy sweetness almost like candy. Red apples, chocolate, sweet cherries. Chocolate
Taste: heavy malt, but still sweet. Premium chocolate, a little coffee. Slight bitterness on the back
Feel: thin on the palate not heavy or oily at all. Not heavily carbonated
Overall: not a bad beer. Still looking for something sweeter.
