3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured black with a large light brown creamy head tha lasted throughout and had excellent lacing. The aroma was of burnt chocolate malts and a sweet yeast with a hint of coffee and dark chocolate. It tasted light and sweet with a hint of chocolate at first and then had a slighltly bitter-sweet chocolate-coffee flavor at the end with the flavor lasting a nice long time. Mouthfeel was medium to full in body and very creamy in texture with a flat carbonation. Overall a nice mild, flavorful stout.

Draft wob. This is the kind of "chocolate" stout I prefer. As opposed to youngs, this one is bitter. Body is full and creamy texture. Aroma is of dark chocolate and roasted barley. Middle is of bitter roasted coffee and cocoa nibs. Carbonation is spritzy and refreshing. Finish is cocoa bitter and lingering slightly sweet chocolate. Overall dry, bitter, chocolatety medium bodied stout.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Opaque deep dark brown beer with a tinny beige head that barely forms before disappearing. Nose of bitter cocoa, coffee, and burnt sugar. Flavor is more of the same with unsweetened chocolate, espresso, and dark roasted grain, but the flavor is surprisingly subtle with little finish. A bit of bitterness lingers, but not much more. Decent, but not great.

Black pour with small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and cocoa. Taste of chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, touch of lactose, cocoa and faint milk sugar. Nice and chocolaty stout with nice carbonation, nicely balanced. Excellent stout!

Bottle split w/ Travlr. Cheers! Chestnut brown with a small head. The nose had some red fruit accents. Mellow chocolate. Not much else. The taste also lacks personality. Thin burnt caramel and roasted coffee. Way over carbed. Not great.

Interesting but not so chocolate alike in taste. Nice features and some cocoa powder aroma but not much.

Bottle. Pours a light brown. Mild lacing with a small head. .. Coco, muddy water, and some chocolate kids porridge .. . Overall way to light and just a bit muddled, not my cup of tea .. . . What’s the etiquette when you pull up next to a dude with the same exact car as you? Avoid eye contact? Nod? Wink? Swordfight?

From notes, consumed on 4/7/13. Bottle poured into a tulip pint glass. Pours black with almost a finger of tan head. Aromas of roast, coffee, dark chocolate. Tasting notes of dark and milk chocolates, roast, pretzels. Light body with a semi-dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque, oily black into the glass, with a non-retentive head. The nose is chocolates and grapes. Vinous flavors, cocoa, roasted malts, light roasted bitters to finish. The mouthfeel is full-bodied, softly carbonated and very drinkable. Complex, vinous and chocolatey, this is a very nice organic offering! Fresh!
