0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Its either the bottle or the beer but this was unpleasant. Upon opening there was a loud “psssst”, to which I immediately put the bottle in the sink, no gusher so I took a sip, my mouth filled up with gas causing me to spit out the beer and again expecting the rest of the bottle to gusher, it did not. Pouring in a glass gave me something I don’t think I have ever seen, 100% head with maybe a 2 oz pour. The persistent over-carbonation makes this acidic and prickly to the taste, not the smooth and creamy characteristics I want in a stout. Nasty and undrinkable.

Bottle at the hotel room in San Diego. Black beer with a small head. Roasted chocolate aroma, licorice, coffee, cocoa powder, caramel, earthy notes, some biscuits. Roasted chocolate flavor, tar, coffee, kinda bitter, hay notes, some tar. A bit too heavy on not so good coffee. Liked the aroma though.

This beer is lacking something, its not horrible just weak, not enough alcohol or just not enough stout flavor overall

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bison Organic Chocolate Stout has a thick, beige head, a very dark brown (almost black) appearance, with heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of dark coffee, cream, bitter chocolate, and rich, dark-roasted malt. Taste is of acidic, strong coffee, chicory, cream, bitter chocolate nibs, and dark malt. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Bison Organic Chocolate Stout finishes semi-wet and drinkable. RJT

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber poured into a pint, black with a light brown head decent lacing. Chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa powder, dark fruit, roasted flavor with toast, burnt nut and bitter chocolate notes. A good dose of bitterness counteracts the cocoa leading to a dry finish with a subtle tinge of hops. This stout taste a lot better when served at room temp.

Not a ray of light comes through this one, so looks are great. Doesn’t taste very strong at first but intensely bitter when swallowed. I only taste chocolate in the aftertaste. Not my favorite and still not a fan of chocolate in beers, sorry.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Some sharp bitter chocolate with a hint of roast. OK head and lacing. Black pour. Light bitter finish. Palate is pretty straight forward here, not a lot of complexity. Bottle.
