3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep black with a tight tan head. The nose is quite cocoaish. A fairly pronounced earthy character and even a little bit of nice fruitiness. Lots of silky, oaty unctuousness. Cloudy palate and a nice lingering bitter cocoa flavour. Another very well-made bitter style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On a nitro tap at the brewpub. Pours a deep black with brown highlights and a medium tanned head. Roast, chocolate, and malt on the nose. Creamy, but a little thin due to the nitro. Finishes with a long roast bitterness. Nice session stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black body with a long-lasting medium tan head. Roasted nose. Taste has a lot of roasted grainy malts followed by a medium amount grassy hops and a light citric touch. Not much to report in terms of chocolate/coffee/fruity flavours. The floury yeast and the roastiness blend together and leave a somewhat dry impression. Pleasant average generic brewpub stout. Incidentally the brewpub also makes a truly amazing stout-cheddar soup. The cheese probably has most to do with it.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured dark. Brown head, bubbly and fast dissipating. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, and malt. Flavor of chocolate milk, with a sweet caramel center, but the end tasted like metal. Thin bodied. Again, I simply left it in the growler to long. I could sense a fantastic beer, so I will have to somehow acquire more of this.

On tap at the brewpub with a 5oz sample. Aroma is chocolatey and mildly smoked and milky. A bit of peatiness is also present. Very nice aroma.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had this one on draught in Glens Falls, New York. Deep black, nearly opaque color with a thick, brown head, nose of coffee, very complex taste with notes of apricot, bitter chocolate, and amaretto with a very soft finish. An outstanding sweet stout.
