Hazy dark chestnut. Straightup fudge & coffee nose. Somewhat light "foreign" body with vague icing sugar sweetness. Very nutty. A little underwhelming.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma of dark toasted malt, could be some coffee, chocolate and oak. It’s a strong aroma. Near opaque brown/black color with a decent tan head. Near full bodied with creamy carbonation. It has an oak bite to go with dark toasted malt, and a touch of coffee. Finishes dry, slightly astringent and a little woody and bitter. Leaves the mouth a bit stunned. It’s pretty good.

Bottle from Party Town. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid roasted coffee and chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth dry texture. Medium roasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(22oz bottle) Very dark brown topped by persistent and slightly rocky tan head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is moderately sweet, coffee/roast, fudge/milk chocolate, confectionery sugar. Taste is roast/coffee, some nut/salty, cocoa/chocolate, earthy, light wood. Some earthiness, but most of the bitterness is from the coffee maltiness. Smooth medium body, no sign of alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bombert poured a clear black with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of coffee, carmel, nuts, roastiness, dark chocolate and hints of oak and vanilla. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roastiness, chocolate, coffee and a hint of oak with a smooth roasty finish.
Decent stout but WAY over priced.
