I love a good stout and this one does not disappoint. Very dark appearance with a good sized, long lasting, well laced head. Aroma held some chicory and a good dose of roasted malt. Medium to full-bodied mouthfeel. Flavor had a slight bit of sweetness. Smooth, pleasant finish.

A great beer. If it wasn't so expensive I would be drinking it more often. Great flavor.

You know this really was not that bad of a stout. Extremely dry and full bodied. Rich oily texture, with smooth chocolate flavors dominate the taste, but the most flavor coming out of the beer is roasted and lightly nutty, sort of like drinking a Hershey's with almonds.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black colour with a good light brown frothy head, aroma of mild coffee carries through to the taste with a hint of licorice. Good beer but maybe a little sweet.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very overlooked stout. One of the most refreshing stouts I've had. Standard coffee/chocolate flavor, but nicely bodied and quite smooth. The semi-sweet maltiness adds to the beer's balance. Mild aftertaste. An easy-drinking stout that's easy to polish off.

Deep dark black with a very impressive rocky tan head. Faint coffee, the a full dry flavor throughout. Pretty good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I like this stout very much. Pours an opaque black. Little tan head that settles quickly. Aroma is very present. Malty/roasty with a nicely balanced hopp finish. A tad watery, but very good.
