3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black body with a medium tan head. Very roasted beer. Very toasted bread, light roasted coffee beans, hint of vanilla, faint dark chocolate. Some grassy and citric hops. Short mild-medium bitterness. Overall rather dry especially for a Sweet Stout. Full bodied by a lively carbonation. Nothing original but a highly enjoyable stout. Was simply called “Stout” at the pub. I assume it’s the same as this “Black Bear Stout” ratebeer entry. They probably just stopped making a beer for the black bear. It’s a bad idea to make a beer for bears anyway, they eat the customers when they get the munchies.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Truly excellent sweet stout, with a very powerful milk chocolate aroma, medium sugar in the flavor, vanilla hints swirling amongst the chocolate, rather dry finish like most of the brewery's stuff, just a bit too much astringency or it would be GREAT. Still, pretty top-notch.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has a very dark brown color with no carbonation and a roasted smell. Taste is of roasted malt and finishes bitter. Overall it is not the best stout that I have had, but it is pretty good.
