3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very competent bargain stout; viscous, heavy bitter malts and sharp carbonation, coffee chocolate. Some prominent sweetness as well; no alcohol presence, but makes up with a pleasant body. Really nice six-pack build beer; drinkable and tasty.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow... Really impressed with this high rating... Pours a deep dark black brown with a tan head. Some lacing... Rich deep aromas: chocolate malt, coffee, light alcohol, light butterscotch, vanilla, very light licorice. The taste is (nearly) perfectly balanced. Wonderful light velvet mouth feel, soft carbonation, and a lingering bitter finish. Will drink again... I’ll even pay for it!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro draft @ Hopleaf . Just looking at this beer makes me want to chug it down. Thick full tan head that looks alive after it is poured. Black tar looking color. Smells of roasted charred malts, chocolate, dark fruit and barley. Taste of dark roasted grain hints of plums, dark / bitter chocolate, and traces of coffee dregs. Finish has a large amount of dry roast. The sweetness from the malts with the dry roasted finish works really well together. The Nitro provides a creamy, full bodied mouthfeel. For a standard stout being under the imperial qualification, this is damn good!
