2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can: Pours a watery looking deep brown with a vanishing head. Aroma is almost all plastic.Has odd phenolics, with only a hint of malted & roasted barley. Very watery texture. Flavor is really mild, with only light cocoa hints. The finish is vacant, with only a late subtle coffee indication (but you have to search for it) A pretty weak Stout.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can (12oz). Stout in a CAN - how awesome is this? Clear deep ruby-brown with a small beige head. Thatís a pretty decent aroma - light milk chocolate, nutty, sweet, mildly lactic, and some light minty herbal hops in the background. The taste is a little thin - sweet chocolate malt and light grassy hops, but thereís a little something else in the roast Iím not loving, and the bodyís not really there - decent roast, but Iíd like a little more astringency and thickness - heck, even some carbonation would be good - but thereís no odd syrupy aftertaste to it, so thatís a plus for it. Stout in a can - and drinkable. Wow.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma is mild, but quite pleasant, with some sweet and roasty notes, much like an iced coffee. Body is thin for a stout. Flavour follows the aroma - mild, roasty and sweet - with a slight lactic note in the finish. Needs more body and oomph to be a really good stout, but this didnít offend me.

enjoyed this the most of the bn family, sweet milkly like taste and consistency, roasty finish. With a super malt like aroma here, and a nice finish, I find no reason to disagree with this beer existence. Its okay.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a can. Pours very dark brown with small beige head. Slight aroma. The taste is coffee with a little milk/sugar in it, but it isnít really rich. The CO2 adds a tiny acidic aspect to it. I like the texture more than those Nitrogen cans (Guiness. Murphyís). A decent stout, but itís okay to miss this one.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2008 12 oz can from a 12 pack variety pack purchased at Spirits RB. Pours a deep dark brown with a small layer of off white head. Aroma of milk chocolate and very ight coffee, perhaps diet coffee. Palate seems to be more flat then it does soft. Weak unoffensive flavor that really never makes itself none. This beer seems like it might have potential but as it is it just blah.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
this is my favorite session stout!
i just discovered the six packs of cans of this stuff at yankee spirits in South Attleboro, Ma, and i was very pleasantly surprised when i drank it.
very dark, nice and foamy.....thick (but not too thick), sweet, malty, chocolate/coffee/caramel aromas, cocoa and coffee flavor, high malt, low hop....as far as iím concerned, there has never been a better "session strength" sweet stout!

Sampled at GWBF 2007. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a thin head that was quickly chased away. Strong coffee in the aroma. So strong I wondered if this was a coffee stout. Coffee was also the dominant flavor quality along with some roasted malt. Some bitterness lingers at the finish, but it quickly dissipates. Medium bodied.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Iíve been waiting for the day I would see this beer and it has finally come. I have tried the other three by this brewery, so where we go with this one.
Pours a dark brown that lets light through. No head. Nose is roasted malts. Flavor is a completely odd and not appropriate mix of smoked malts and roasted malts. I already know I will not be finishing this. Feel has a decent carbonation and a liquid feel that is too thin. If you see this one, just pass. Borders on a disaster of a stout, IMO.
