4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to Bob for the bottle! Poured clear, deeper ambery-brown with a sticky cap of dark tan head.. looked very good in the glass. The aroma picked up sweet, milky chocolates and buttery notes with a hint of molasses-crusted biscuity notes beneath.. sweet, smooth, and very desserty impression.. I very much enjoyed it. The flavor found buttermiky-y chocolates, smooth rolled oats, and vanilla at the core, with light earthy and cocoa bitterness around.. more milky chocolates and complementary roasted bitterness on the finish. Medium-bodied with a very smooth feel across the palate.. the levels and placement of bitterness and roast worked perfectly.. just excellent stuff. This was surprisingly good, and I hope more people get to try it when itís fresh.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a pure black color with a medium creamy beige head. A sweet nose of cocoa, vanilla, and light roast. A very unique flavor with hints of tartness from the British Cask Yeast I think, some cocoa, a somewhat thin palate, vanilla and coffee. Good.

"pretty standard example of the style. looks good n dark on the pour. smooth with that lactic quality to the body. smells of milk chocolate and tastes similar, with an ever so slight sourness. not a standout but decent enough. "

(12oz bottle thanks to Exiled) cloudy deep brown with a ring of fine brown bubbles. Nose of brine, olives, milk chocolate, and a bit of fudge. Taste of unsweet coffee, a bit of umami, watery, smoke, and I donít like the linger. Seems old.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: The aroma is a nice mixture of chocolate, roasted coffee, and a hint of nuts. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a one finger tan head that fades to a thin film and leaves spotty lacing. The flavor starts with moderate milk chocolate and a touch of vanilla. The finish has light-moderate roasted coffee and a hint of fruit. Itís medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, a very nice Sweet Stout and I can definitely see myself drinking plenty of this in the near future.
