3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours black with a small head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma is nice, chocolate milk, light roasted coffee, anise, and a light fruitiness. Taste is a tad bland but not bad. Chocolate, coffee, anise, and cream, but all are muted. Medium to thick body, very creamy, slight chalky too. Ok sweet stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This stout poured a deep black colour with a dark brown head. Scents include cocoa, coffee and caramel. First sip was silky smooth with flavours of lite chocolate and coffee flavours. Finish is burnt and black coffee like. Burnt flavour lingers....

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smells and looks like the groundcover of unsaid northeastern woodlands. Indeed, it tastes more like actual dirt and wet wood than most - which is to say, lots of burnt oat effect. In moments, I appreciated the overstatement - but not a beer I’d get again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gift bottle brought back by neighbors from latest Minn. trip. Poured to a Czech-pils glass showing a ruby highlighted, black/brown color, with a brownish tan, froth & bubbles head that gradually diminished to a thick ring & bubbly film, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The nose was a hint of sweetness, creaminess & smooth malt, roastiness, cocoa, a touch of vanilla, and coffee/espresso on the back. Medium+ bodied, the flavor presented a roasty, smokey, lingering bitterness that was propelled to the palate by an amped effervescence. Only medium malt backup, with the flaked creaminess more prevalent in the aroma imo. Finished with some tart and dry astringency.

Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours near black with a dark brown head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma roasted malts and tobacco with a bit of sweet chocolate underlying. Flavor has more sweet chocolate and sweet dark grains with a bit of a tobacco bite towards the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Earthy aroma, a little malty and toasty. Starts out with a little sweetness and zest in the mouth which quickly transitions to a slightly bittersweet swallow and a pretty clean finish. Overall, a nice milk stout.
