4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance of almost black with a creamy tan head leaving nice lace. Smell of rich chocolaty coffee notes and sweet dark malts. Taste has the same notes as the aroma with a nice hop balance to round off the flavor. Mouthfeel is viscous with good carbonation. overall a very nice bold stout that would go very well with some rich chocolaty desserts.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Milky, chocolatey, just a hint of Kona coffee. Almost black as midnight with a supreme creamy texture. Has a slightly bitter aftertaste that lasts until the next quaff. Almost a smidgen of brown sugar sweetness as well. Very delicious. My local distributor said he can get me a 1/6 brl of this, and I think I may just do that. Very good out of a bottle, cannot imagine how good this would be from a nitro tap.

On tap. Rich black mahogony hue and dark walnut on the edges. Medium pillowy tan head that sticks pretty good through the pint. Nice chocolate notes that are smooth and not too bitter. Subtle coffee and burnt toffee notes come in hints. Very smooth and drinkable beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A thick, wet black pour from the bottle into a pint glass with a full black color topped by a large creamy-foamy tan head with excellent retention, and average cling and lacing. Its aroma featured a blend of malty tones, including chocolate, caramel, and coffee along with some earthy and grainy notes. The taste was mildly bitter with a rich chocolate and coffee blend, which also had a touch of sweetness and an earthy finish. The beer had a very thick, full mouthfeel with a heavy body and average carbonation for a smooth finish. Excellent stout!

Cloying sweet. Strong coffee on nose that reminds me of my morning coffee, which is nice. There was something funky on the palate....very molasses.
