4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Brewery. Black pour with a thick frothy head. Aroma of grains, dark cocoa, and hints of nutmeg. Taste like oatmeal and maple syrup. Dark chocolate, hints of old coffee grains and nutmeg. Thick and full bodied. Not a big fan of this style, but loved this one. Nice bittersweet finish.

Rotbox offering @ home. Pours a dark brown appearance with a thin dark brown head. There’s some coffee and anise notes in the nose. Oatmeal and a smoke as well. Some frosting notes. Kind of thin and watery. Fairly burnt / smoky flavor. Dark chocolate. Fairly bitter / herbal finish. Bleh.

Not much comes through on the nose. Nice caramel head that fades pretty quickly. Nice lacing. A little on the hoppy side. Glad to support some up and coming Florida breweries.

A nice mocha head that disappears rather quick. Some caramel and nutty notes in the aroma. Tastes of toasted malt with chocolate notes and a fairly clean mouthfeel and finish.

Bomber. Pours a pure jet black color with a medium somewhat thick brown head. A big black patent and light roast nose. Somewhat dry, cocoa, light dark fruit, some fruity bitter hops. Overall, dry and mellow. Light metal. Decent enough would be better on cask.

Bomber to snifter (shared with mikem409, Hubsluvsbeer, and the Mrs; thanks burg326). Looks good; a dark cola with AMPLE fluffy tan head. Smells of dark malt with some roast and oat. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad.

Very refreshing, a little bit bitter in a way only stouts are but nice grain flavour. Fine foam and great features.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Moderate to heavy toasted and dark chocolate for the malt. Light herbs and dough for the hops and yeast, with a hint of prune. Head is small, frothy, light brown with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is very dark brwon. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery with a lively carbonation and finishes very dry. Nice deep toasty/chocolatey aromaslead this Stout up, and it’s so much nicer when it’s warmed up a bit.
