3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Champanes,
this stout had a black-brown pour with a three to four finger head of light tan to tan colored bubbles, the effervescence was hard to see since the beer was opaque but I do see some good streams of bubbles at the side of the glass, this drink left small spots and small fingers of lacing on the glass, there were brown spots and slivers of sediment? on the bottom of the bottle,
the aromas were roasted malt with chocolate, a little coffee with milk chocolate and malt sweetness,
the flavors were roasted malt with some chocolate and a little coffee, caramel and chocolate sweetness,
the finish had a little bite from roasted malt and some coffee while roasted malt and sweetness trails afterwards on the tongue,
the mouth feel was about medium and gave a little creamy feel on the palate,
this sweet stout had nice aromas and flavors with a sweetness that balances the beer for the most part, it is not overly sweet,
the presentation was very nice, and it was easy to drink.

Pours deep black with lactose notes and light vanilla sweetness. A light creamy texture which allows th lactose dominate with a fabulous nuanced bit of toasted sweet grains. Nice oily finish. Love this stout!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Bottle] Pours dark brown with a small, light brown head. Aroma is primarily roasted malt and milk chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, milk chocolate, a little lactic, mild bitterness, notes of anise and some oats. Medium mouthfeel, smooth, long finish. Overall, a solid stout that really has no glaring faults at all. Definitely one of the best (if not the best) Brau Brothers beers that I have had.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Pours dark black with a tan head that rings around the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, light chocolate, slightly ashy, with a vegetal aroma just lurking around that’s difficult to describe (could be green bell pepper, could be snap peas). Little bit of beef jerky. Flavor has chocolate, roasted malt, and some light raisin. Sweetness from the lactose sugar is present as well, with a lingering finish of caramel corn. This is actually the best aspect of the beer. Mouthfeel is fairly thin, not full and creamy as the deScription states, but it does possess a certain silkiness. Carbonation is quite toned down which contributes to the silky mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Overall not a bad everyday Stout. Not much of an aroma. Apprearance was nice and dark, with a thin rich brown head. Alcohol was not overpowering and the taste was smooth until the last sip.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A- Roasty, malty, slightly smokey, cocoa.
A- Black color, black liquid, brown head.
T- Roasty, slightly bitter, slightly malty, dry cocoa.
P- Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, roasty finish.
O- Full of roastiness but not a lot else. I was expecting a slightly sweet and smooth drink but it was a whole lot of roastiness and not much else in terms of aroma or flavor. Just needed some more depth to it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma is wonderful chocolatety, nutty, roasted notes, oatmeal, almost a milk like scent, and just the slightest bit of alcohol. Appearance is a deep dark black with a medium to thick tan head that lingers. Taste is like malty chocolate milk, but in a really really good way. This stuff goes down super easy and for a big malty brew is quite drinkable. Overall, Really nice I like this one a lot. Cheers!
