4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Pauly’s in Lowell. Pours a viscous black color with a reddish-brown head. Smells and tastes of toasted malts, toffee, milk cocoa, and irish cream. Much more aggressive and dense than i was anticipating, which was a pleasant suprise. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty basic dry stout. Well balanced, roasty, slightly bitter, and a bit creamy yet light and easy drinking. Not all that impressive, but pleasant none the less.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown with a thick head. Roasty, stingy nose with light peanut and full rich malts. Rich, chocolatey character with a slight acidic tang and again vague nuts. This is a quality take on an Irish stout. It has richness and malt complexity and yet a lot of drinkability as well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big-ass swing-top bottle from Pat’s Liquors in Porter, Indiana: This pours a deep, dark brown body with a lofty, sustained light brown head and provides a whole lotta lace. The aroma is roasted, almost burnt dark malts with some bittersweet chocolate. Medium bodied, the flavor remains roasty, added some coffee, with the chocolate sweetening up a bit. Dry finish. Not bad.
