a fairly decent chocolate stout, but ends with a somewhat acerbic hop bite. great chocolate flavor, dark malts, but its a bit bitter on the back end. nothing special.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a small tan head and a bit of lacing that mostly slides back down into the beer. Aroma of milk chocolate, dark roast coffee, hazelnut, and a hint of vanilla. Very roasty. Taste is bittersweet chocolate, dark roast coffee, toffee, hazelnut, and black liquorice. Hop bitterness actually comes through pretty well. Full bodied, but the texture is a little thin with medium carbonation and a long finish of roasted malts. This is far more drinkable than it should be. Very flavorful, but not completely overwhelming.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: near black, with two fingers of silky, creamy dark brown head and decent lacing. Aroma: milk and dark chocolate, granite dust, chalk, cream, hint of peanut shell and café mocha. Taste: more coffee in the taste than the aroma, with decent bittersweet dark chocolate to balance. Finish: smooth, slightly mineral, dry, and a bit bitter. Notes: Better than average chocolate stout, and WAY better as it warmed up. First sip I was all like "eww" but by the end I was all like "not bad, brah".

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light nutty aroma but a surprising lack of aroma. hmm. Nigerian black color with a dark brown head. Has a very subtle zing at first then the strange sensation that i can only compare to cheaply cut cocaine. Shitty if i would have paid $50 for that taste but since it was only a buck 70, i’m ok with it. Still it has some artificial tone to it. uneventful.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small foamy dark tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was dry and roasty with faint notes of coffee, chocolate and floral hops. The flavor was dry, roasty and bitter with a bit of coffee and floral hops but no chocolate. Medium length finish and medium body. Disappointing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A finger and half of tan head on a pitch black body.
The aroma is roasted malt and a hint of chocolate.
The taste is a robust roasted malt with the chocolate balancing but not surpassing the malt. great balance.
Slick texture with moderate carbonation and medium to heavy body.
A solid stout.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle pour, nice dark coloring with decent head. Aroma of roasted malt (coffee, burnt) with faint hints of cocoa. Taste is entirely roasted malt character: smoky, acidic. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice label and branding. Unfortunately the marketing is a lot better than the product.
