3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle poured into glass. Dark creamy pour with a very thin head. Aroma is pretty damn good, hints of caramel, chocolate, cream, butter scotch and peanuts. Flavor is a tad smokey but still very sweet. A pretty impressive beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is sweet and toasted with coffee, chocolate, and a touch of burnt earth. The appearance is dark brown with a tan head. The taste is like the aroma and a more than a touch acidic. The palate is a bit thin. Overall not a bad beer but I wanted more.

Whoooooooaaaaaa. No reason for that.
Pours dark black and allows some light on the edges and dons one finger of dark tan head. Nose is interesting, actually a heavy smoke component in there. Very peaty, Scotch notes. Some roast and bitter chocolate. Smoky flavor too, peat smoky like a Scotch. Weird. Some bakers chocolate in there. Medium bodied with a hint of heat. This one threw me for a loop.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle poured into an English Pint at 40°. Color is black with easy carbonation and a thin tight tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and dark chocolate. It has a bold medium body that goes down with a smooth almost creamy mouth feel. Flavor of roasted mild coffee, dark baking chocolate and a touch of vanilla. After taste is sweet, the vanilla comes out a bit more and a hint of alcohol shows in the back. Overall its a good brew, maybe a little sweet in the end, but chocolate flavors show well.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: silky black pour with a creamy tan head that quickly fizzes out to a collar. Aroma: milk chocolate, vanilla beans, clotted cream. Taste: malted milk balls (the candy), with loads of vanilla and sweet milk chocolate, along with a hint of coffee, maybe. Finish: slowly building lactic tang, fighting against the creamy sweetness. Notes: I love a chocolate stout, but this had almost too much of the sweet chocolate and vanilla notes. Would have benefited from a touch more bitterness, and some light roastiness. Finish had a slightly unpleasant note I can’t articulate.
