3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of roasted malts with a hint of coco. A dark brown pour with a rapidly diminishing tan head. The taste is similar to the nose. Roasted malts, chocolate, and some grain in the finish and aftertaste. Medium- light mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, quite tasty, but wish it were more full bodied.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer is quite frothy, and the head is a nice light tan color with the beer itself being black. The aroma is full of hints of dirt, dough, and toasted malts and is quite strong without being overpowering. The taste is quite nice, for it doesn’t shock your system; rather, the light yet hearty sweetness coats your taste buds with its light-medium body. Although the taste is easy, this is a solid dark beer that fades off your tongue smoothly.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Created a thick fluffy head which quickly retreated leaving behind a solid dark brown liquid. Aroma smells sour with a bold roasted malt profile that assures me that this is a stout. The drink comes up empty with no real stout like characteristics other than a weak flavor of roast malt and a sour lactic taste in the finish. Palate is sort of fizzy and seems as though I’m drinking a Pepsi or something.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark roast, burnt molasses and raisins come through on the aroma. Pure black in color with no foam. Flavor is very watered down with faint notes of raisin, oats and molasses. Overall, nothing special. just an under average stout. D- rating.
