3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark brown, near black, appearance with a nice, lasting tan head. Aroma is milk chocolate with some roasted malts and caramel notes. Nice body, creamy with good carbonation. Coffee flavor, dark roast, light chocolate and a medium bitter finish. Something about all Brooklyn Brewery beers, they have a very distinct flavor/aroma to me... kind of like an orange/metallic note towards the end. Very distinct but hard to describe. This beer is very nice, I think it’s pretty true to the style and done right. Very flavorful for such low abv, really enjoyed this one, pleasantly surprised.

4/11/15 (Bottle) -Nice dark black pour with mild carbonation and a nice generous tan head with decent thickness. Very enjoyable aromas including roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and hazelnut. Beer tasted excellent, with the rich aromas all present and enjoyable. Nice going down, felt the carbonation. Beer not very strong, and makes a great paring with a meal or dessert. Excellent offering by Brooklyn Brewery!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazelnut, coffee, and cola nose. Black, thin tan head, almost no retention. Roasted malt and grain, dry. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Good roast character and appropriate dryness for the style. I prefer a creamier irish stout and this is a bit harsh.
