4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is my favorite stout to get when I can find it at a local store :) Itís so chocolatey but at the same time the bitterness of it balances very well. It doesnít run sweet thankfully like some of the chocolate brews Iíve had. The head is creamy and it has a nice toasty aftertaste. Itís one of the most balanced brews Iíve found :)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Nose is subtle, with notes of dry bitter cocoa and light roastiness. Flavour is along the same lines, featuring a dry palate of bitter dry cocoa and medium roasted malt. Pretty gentle and smooth -- could use a thicker mouthfeel and a rounder flavour profile, but for a "smaller" stout, this is quite nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
color is black with almost no lacing. Aroma is straight forward roasty malts. Taste is kind of neutral with a very dry finish. In fact the bulk of this beer is the finish, which is pleasantly dry, but doesnít make up for a lack of anything remotely interesting taste wise. Itís pretty boring actually. I wouldnít drink this again.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a brown color with tan head. Charred cocoa, charred malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Very bitter and off-putting.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
very good. Balanced, long flavour; notes of berries and dark fruit. Lots of taste given the low ABV

Toasted malt nose. Cola brown, headless. Walnut and cardboard flavor. Unftunately the latter is dominant and lingers. Body is medium to ligt, moderte carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle. The head is a little disappointing, but it has okay lacing and rich brown color that is appealing. It smells better than it tastes, I donít think that the organic does it any favors.

Bottle. Dark brown, with a small, light tan head. Aroma is a chocolate, mocha, burnt grains. Taste is a bitter chocolate with undertones of coffee.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Swiss Louis on Pier 39 in San Fran. Poured from my bottle a light black with tan head. The aroma was bitter sweet chocolate, malts, and yeast. Taste was light chcocolate, a malty backbone. Overall a decent beer, I was wishing for more of the chocolatey bittersweet to come through though.
