2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a 12 fl. oz. can. Pours really dark and almost black. Very little head. Strange aroma of chocolate, coffee grinds, and raisins. In a way it is rather off-putting. Actually, I haven’t experienced an aroma quite like it. Heavy mouth feel. Smoked chocolate malts and coffee flavor and finishes on the dry side. It leaves an aftertaste. A lot of folks are more impressed with this one that I am.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can - Pours a dark brown color with a small light tan head. Faint lacing. Aroma and flavor is chocolate and coffee. Light to medium body. Leaves the palate dry. Not bad for a canned stout.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice looking pur from a black can. looks like rootbeer with a thin choco mousse head. Good clean beery aroma but it lacks any of the typical stout aromas. taste is slightly bitter and stoutish with roasty burned wet wood character. Mild imps stout attribute on the finish but very acceptable.

Can pours deep brown with a light tan sparse head. Roasted aroma with some metallic notes. Very chocolatey. Dry on the tongue with a light hop bitterness. Nice weight as you drink it. Favorite B’nuts by far.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Mes rate: can at GBBF thanks to Rob Beer.
A very dark amber brown with a thin tan head. Sweet chocolate malt aroma with some slight earth and good fruity notes. Very roasty and dry in the mouth. Tasty chocolate, a good level of sugar, some nice milky notes and and an enjoyable sweet finish. A good sweet stout in my opinion.

Smell is unusual, very sweet, sort of milky. Taste is nice dark thick malts, some coffee, but weak. Very tasty for a stout from a can

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz can. Very dark brown, not quite black, with no head. Another odd nose from this brewery - very sweet maple syrup and toffee, rather bold, roasty... did I mention sweet? Some black coffee with way too much sugar? Thin body. Weak roast and syrup flavors. WTF happened here? Whatever.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can in pint glass. Dark brown/black with lasting tight tan head and lace. Nice coffee chocolate and chocolate milk aroma. Sweet chocolate and roasted cofee flavor with chocolate covered dark fruit and fairly dry bitter finish. Medium-light body and medium carbo. Definitely a nice sessionable stout with a good flavor.
