3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at the brewery. Black with a nice beige head. Appearance is somehow a cut above typical. A big coffee aroma. The flavor begins with rich coffee. This is earthy and sumpy (?). This has a sourness to it that is just a little off putting. The beer is generally sweet and almost syrupy. A bit of citrus at the finish. Nice.

Tap at brewery
Pours black with barely any head. Nose is hugely roasty lots of coffee. Flavors exhibit the same but it’s a tad sour. Not infected just think it’s the malt and maybe water issues. Still it’s pretty solid but lacks a good body. Love the char on this.

Dark brown pour. Nose is vegetal, prunes, some stale coffee. Taste is stale coffee with a ton of sugar poured in, prunes, chocolate, sweet rotten fruit. Mouthfeel is initially sticky, then light and spritzy.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of "Mr. Plumpy". Colour...basically black with a thin tan head. Nose...very heady coffee aromas. Palate...whew! Cold brewed coffee with a bit of ethanol. There’s a tangy aspect to this and some fruity notes ( perhaps the type of beans). The finish is semi dry.

355ml bottle. Brown pour, large head. Aroma is coffee and earth. Falvor is sweet with coffee tones, nuts, spice, low body, weird that it is so highly rated.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. 42F. Tulip glass room temp. The stout pours with visable body and develops its milk chocolate head slowly. Head disapates quickly (2 min.) and then maintains a ring. Aroma is reminiscent of caramel candies. The stout is very roasty, essence of chocolate, but like the head disapates off of the tounge quickly and leaves an earthy/soil flavor. No noticeable foward flavor, most flavor is at the middle and back of the palate. I was hoping for more with this stout, the body was low and the flavor was fleeting.
