3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home. Pours almost black with some yeast particles and with a brown small head. Aroma is smoothly roasted and sweet with chocolate, biscuits, saccharin sweetnees, red fruits, vinous plums & dark fruits, smoked ham and licorice. A bit too much alcohol on both nose and taste for a 6% beer. Medium bodied, initially smooth chocolate flavor along with red berries, caramel, dark bread & licorice. Finish is drier, a bit tart, and has biscuits, some nuts and a coffee-like bitterness. Will probably improve with some aging.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark chocolate brown with a thick foamy tan head. Coffee and chocolate are prominent. Smokey finish. A tad hoppy for a stout and slightly lacking in malt profile, but that actually makes it kinda interesting. The alcohol is a bit prevalent. Still, a pretty decent stout all around.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very good black pour w/ a tan head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is of soft malt & fairly uninteresting for the style. The taste while well balanced isn’t all that flavorful either. It has a really nice mouthfeel & doesn’t have any flaws per say but just lacking slightly in complexity. It is easily drinkable & overall a decent stout!
