2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma - for a stout, I’d think it would be a little bit more full of aroma. This beer really doesn’t have much of one. A pretty small chocolate malt, which has to really be coaxed out after several swirls.
Appearance - body color is black; liquid is opaque; the head is beige and initially 1 1/2" sets into a slice of foam on top of the body
Taste - semi-sweet with some roasty malt, there is also a little chocolate malt
Palate - body is a medium; texture is a light creaminess; the carbonation is soft; finish is slightly bitter and medium in length

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sweet stout? This comes across as more of a watery dry stout. Decent chocolately malt aroma, ok dark pour w/ no head & little lacing, but a thin mouthfeel & lack of flavor. Not at all what I was expecting. Not a good stout by any means!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty mediocre stout. Pours black with a creamy head. Lots of chocolate flavor, and basically tastes like chocolate milk. Not much else going on though so it relies on that one note.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft, Pours dark black with small khaki head. Aroma is sugar, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is a milk chocolate. A bit thin but tastes good. Not an overpowering stout at all, almost like chocolate mild. OK at best.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours a flat black body with a small fizzy light brown head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is pretty decent, nicely chocolaty with a lactose sweetness and a roasted malt base. A little bit of nuttiness and burnt notes. The flavor starts out pretty decent, slightly sweet, rather chocolaty, nice roast notes. Things go a tad awry on the finish though, it comes across a bit burnt and acrid with a little bit of a rubber note. They’re fairly minimal though, so it really doesn’t ruin the whole experience. Guess ya just have to drink it faster to keep the finish short. Lighter bodied with a little cling to the back end. Soft gentle carbonation. I wasn’t expecting great things from this one, but this wasn’t bad.
