3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours nearly black. Thin head gone in a minute, no lacing.
Nose is cocoa. Taste pretty much the same with nice dark bitter chocolate notes.
Slightly thin mouthfeel, but overall not a bad beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep black pour with a bit of reddish opaqueness around the very edges. Aroma is milk chocolate and light caramel. Creamy body, high carbonation. Flavor is primarily chcolate but not as pronounced as the aroma. Toffee, caramel and a lot of prickly bitterness on the back end. Lingering milk chocolate. Definitely smoother as it warms. Good brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured almost black with nice creamy head. Faint chocolate in the aroma. A bit over carbonated for a stout in my opinion, mouth feel not as silky as iíd like. A lot of roasty notes, and a nice bitter bite at the finish, though the chocolate didnít come through for me much at all.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles.
Aroma: light chocolate and strong coffee aroma.
Appearance: small, rocky, light-brown, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Dark-brown body.
Taste: lightly sweet, coffee-like initial flavor with lightly acidic, coffee-like finish and very long duration.
Palate: medium-to-full body with watery dry and soft carbonation.
Overall: although the first bottle I tried was so-so, the second was very good, and I look forward to drinking this again. Outstanding aroma and very strong coffee flavor.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Minimal chocolate flavor, even if the chocolate aroma was decent. Bitter taste that I would not have expected.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Overall okay stout. Strong roasted aroma with some coffee and light chocolate. Heavy carbonation for a stout. Would guess better from tap.

Aroma is off sweet. Kind of a roasted malt character. Head is nice and white. One headed stout more coffee than chocolate. MEH this one really isnít a favorite. Donít always be fooled by the "chocolate" description of a chocolate stout
