3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Deep brown, nice head and lacing. Dry powdery cocoa like nose, a touch of dark chocolate and roasted malts. Not as big or sweet on the tongue that I thought it would be. As it warms the aroma starts to remind me of german chocolate cake. Moderate body and mouthfeel. Really lacking sweetness by the finish, for a Sweet Stout. Okay example, but overall too subtle. Thanks Bill!

22oz bottle in a teku. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate, some light roast from the malts, vanilla, hints of cherries, and light dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad beer, but just too sweet for me.

Great beer. Not the straight red velvet flavor some of you were hoping for. Rather it is a hint to the creamy and chocolatey flavors.

Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks, Bobby. Dark brown, nearly black, pour with a khaki head. Roasted malt, oatmeal cookies, and coffee on the nose. Some dark chocolate and ash, as well. Taste is a bit more on the bitter side than expected. Roast, ash, and lots of cocoa. Coffee grounds, a bit of cookie sweetness, and some caramel. Not bad. Not good.

Dark brown pour with a beige head that fades quickly to nothing. Smells like chocolate cake, dark chocolate, and roast. Taste is bitter coffee and some chocolate fudge. Slick texture.
