all over the place complexity - a touch sweet with bitter and dark chocolate as well, interesting malt profile. Bittersweet coffee finish.

12 oz bottle from Total Wine & More - Gilbert, AZ. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, molasses, licorice, light coffee and a touch of dark fruits. Similar flavor, adding a light earthy bitterness. Medium body, with a slick, creamy feel and average carbonation. Overall, good.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from a trade. Pours nearly black with a medium brown head, lots of tiny bubbles, leaving small film on top and a small ring around edge of glass. Nose is rich with chocolate and a general sweetness. Taste is generally flat compared to aroma. Just a slightly thin, chocolatey beer. Meh.

The flavor starts with moderate roasted malt, light molasses, and chocolate. The finish has light-moderate smoke and a touch of coffee. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes. From my AZ trip.
The appearance was a dark black color. one finger off white foamy head that quickly dies and leaves no lacing.
The smell had a mainly dark roasty chocolate, and I donít know why but I get a rubbery sort of aroma - weird and as far as I knowits not necessarily unpleasant, its just different.
The taste was a roasty sweet chocolate, still getting the rubber in the taste as well, leaves the same aftertaste and has a super sweet sticky finish.
On the palate, it sat about a medium on the body, tries to show a sessionable aspect but maintains a somewhat heavier effect to make me try to sip it.
Overall, I say this is a pretty good stout I was surprised to find in AZ as I could definitely have this as a decent winter sipper or for those cooler nights at the least.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
On tap at the brewery. Served ice cold, not a great sign to start. Black, mostly opaque, and very little head. Aroma is malt and some roast, with a slight coffee scent. The flavor is anything but sweet; this is one of the driest stouts Iíve had. Lots of roast and malt flavor with a bitter finish. Overall not a great stout, and it seemed watered down.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Opaque brown/black with a short-lived tan head, thin bands of lace. The taste is mostly toasted malt with overtones of semi-sweet chocolate that enter in the palate. The finish adds a small bit of bittering. The drink is slightly oily and heavy, which doesnít encourage more than one. Overall, a decent, but not memorable example of the style.
